Welcome to our Quick guide about chicken mites and some home remedies. We are Wim Jellema and Enkarna Ibañez, creators and administrators of a portal about chickens and many other farm animals called GranjaOnline (please note that it is in Spanish).
During many years administrating this forum we noticed that one of the most recurrent problem for chicken lovers were mites. And many times the very same questions arose to different people when faced a mite infestation. Then we decided that writing a quick guide could help many people identifying the problem, mites, thus helping them to take action and saving their chickens from pain, and sometimes even death. We thought it would be also good including some home remedies that could, for sure, help our readers fighting against these parasites.
