Hi everyone,

I've not had this problem before so not sure the best course of action. Please help!!

The kids are 3 days old and today we noticed red mites on them. I'm in Thailand so not sure what might be available to me here compared to what's available in US.

So far, no obvious health issues eg they are eating well and appear normal with lots of energy. Want to get onto this problem quickly though

Thanks in advance :)

i’m not sure. i would bathe them with warm water and soap every other day and try and get some DE as fast as you can.

are you able to send pictures?

Here's some photos....they do seem perfectly healthy to look at...

We sprayed some mite spray all throughout their pen a couple of days ago, then put down new bedding. Checking them today, we couldn't find any sign of mites. Hopefully this has worked. We'll respray in 10 days time.
