I was cleaning my nesting boxes out today for my 14 week old pullets, because they are actually starting to go in them for the first time to "practice" I have had some hay in there for a few weeks before this just to make them inviting but this is the first time I've needed to clean them. I saw lots of little crawly red bugs about the size and shape of fleas, but the are red and don't jump. Also I saw alot of "sugar ants" but I have those all over my house, inside and out. THe weird thing is that there is DE in there which the bugs were crawling all over in! What do you all think these red bugs are? They were easily squished.
