The signs of mites and lice on your chickens are: Bald spots Red Skin under bald spots If the comb is pale and tipped over, the comb is like the status indicator on the cell phone. If you pick the bird up and look at it it’s hard to tell, so look under the wings because they like to hide there. If you can see the mies and lice at all, you’ll be able to see them under the wings. If your chickens have bald spots just treat them for mites and lice. Here’s another kind of mite your chicken might have, it’s called scaly leg mites, it gets under the scales on the chicken’s legs and the poo from he mites pushes the scales out. Dip their legs in epsom salt water and then wash with dawn dish soap to cure scaly leg mites. Then coat their legs with vaseline so it suffocates the mites. And then after a few treatments it should be better. How to cure mites and lice on your chickens: Catch your baby, and just try to see the mites under their wing, if you can’t see anything that doesn’t mean they don’t have lice or mites. What I use to treat is DE, you should have it on hand to use as a de-wormer for your whole homestead. Then we’re going to dust the whole chicken with a little bit of DE. Work it through the feathers gently so it gets to the skin and make sure you get it under the wings. You can repeat the treatment once a week for 3 weeks in a row, that should do it. Prevention is your best bet. What I do is go in the coop with a container of DE and spread it on the ground pretty heavy, then when the chickens have a dust bath they’re basically treating themselves beckyshomestead.com/favorites
