I just picked up my roo and was petting him and found little, skinny, brown bugs crawling in his neck feathers. What could this be? I pick him up a lot and have never found any thing like this. I resently started free ranging them so I figure that's were he got them. It doesn't really look like fleas. They are flat and soft and skinny. I am going to go out right now and springle down more DE. But I'd like some answers and any advice you can offer. I also figure that if one has them they all have them. Any body know??? Thanks. Added....They are about this big...... ! ...minus the dot at the bottom and a little fatter.
