    Does anyone know of a good website that would have pictures of different "bugs" that are found on chickens? I occasionally see what look like those little "white flies" on the 13 week old chicks but haven't been able to inspect them to see if they are all over the birds or not and my kids told me that some of the 4 week olds now have very tiny orange bugs on them. I am guessing they are both some kind of mite. No one is itching a lot but I want to treat them correctly and get on top of this.

    Thanks,
    Steph

    Orange or clear or light brown bugs sound like chicken lice. Not sure of a site. I have one saved and will post it when I find it lol!
