    Just went out to check for eggs and there is a barred rock hen trying to lay and making some weird noises from her rear end. I lifted her tail a bit and there are some sort of mite or life or something running around on the skin around the vent... Like a lot. What are they and how do I treat them?!?!

    Sevin or permethrin dust her, especially the vent. I'd do everyone, & the nesting boxes & coop as well.

    Search for anti parasitic dusting powder and dust a.s.a.p your chicken! especially underneath the wings and around the vent! I don't live in the U.S.A so I cant give you
    A specific brand!
