help chicken and egg problem!
« on: May 25, 2009, 21:44 »
Hi All, sorry not been here much (since HLC!) but can i ask a question please?
My son picked up an egg this evening, under a broody hen, and he found it had 100's of black creatures on it. Just asked hubby as im rubbish at explaining things but he said they looked like fleas. Checked the girls and they are ok and the nest was bug free too, which is strange! My biggest fear is obviously red mite and ive puffed red mite powder on them just incase, but anyone come across this and could advise me on what they are and how to get rid off. Im going to clean out thoroughly tomorrow with Poultry shield too!
Any help much appreciated, thanks

Hi Chickchick :D

Good to see you, hope you are well :D

Seems wierd that these things were only only the egg  :wacko: Have you had a look at Aunties external parasite section to see if they match anything there?

I'll pop you over to the Hen House maybe someone has had similar and will be able to help :D
