    do you think this is?its longer then wide ,dark in color and moves very slow.i dont think i have an infestation but i have seen them on a couple of my birds.i thought maybe lice but ive read they are light with a dark spot on them.im getting some sevin dust this weekend and cleaning out the coop real good.waiting for my d e to come in the mail.i also was wondering if theres anything that i can put in their water to help with the bugs.ive got almost 60 and would be very hard to dust them all individually.
    thanks
