    I have noticed reddish brown oval shaped bugs in my coop and run.
    They are small and I thought maybe they were red mites. After some research I find out mites do not fly, and these do.
    They are around day and night.
    Can someone please help me identify what they might be.

    Strange.....can you post a picture? How big are they? The size of a grain or rice or maybe the size of a pencil point?

    smaller than a grain of rice but larger than a pencil point. I will try to get a picture posted soon.
