Chicken mites are often confused with Northern foul mites, but are a different type of bird mite species. These pests can be a problem, particularly with smaller chicken coops. Chicken mite (chicken lice, chicken fleas, or chicken parasites) infestations can cause chicken or other fowl to look sickly or weaken their immune systems and lead to other chicken diseases. This page will help you to identify mites on chickens or other birds and instruct you on proper chicken mites treatment.
