    So was cleaning the waterer today (it sits on a couple of 4x4s) and noticed (apart from a few tiny spiders) these spidery/lice type things (teeny tiny about the size of the o in this typing) the front end was grey/brown and the whole back end was a perfect flat white circle. Any ideas what they could be?

    Sounds like fly eggs or tapeworm but would need to see a picture of it to be sure.
