I suppose mites are pests so I posted here. First off I want to know if they are mites. I don't have pics since the little nasties scurry off into her jungle of feathers whenever I look. They are itty bitty. Some are orange and most are white. Sound like mites? Her name is Bridget and she's a silkie bantam pullet. Really cute and nice. But sweet jesus I can't get rid of these monsters in her fluff. I've sprayed down the coop and run with sevin spray, let it dry, then put sevin dust, then put new shavings, placed their food and water, and put the chickens back in. I have been putting dust especially meant for chickens in her feathers for 2 weeks now. They are still there! The egg clumps in her fluff is still there! They hang around her neck, head, and chest. I have also given her a bath with this shampoo that a worker recommended at the feed store. I didn't see them for a day then they came back the next. The other chickens don't have buggies, I checked them and it's just Bridget. What else can I do?
