About 4 weeks ago they had mites which we dealt with. They ar both pulling feathers out around their necks and under their chests. Have checked for mites and can't see any but did them again just incase, and have sprayed their feathers with anti peck stuff too but they are still doing it. Seem very happy and are still laying fine. What is causing it?Is theit mites that I cant see?Are they bored? help please!
Assuming you really have got all the mites which is very difficult, especially if you have a wooden ark( I'd suggest taking out all the bedding from their ark and cleaning the whole thing with jeyes fluid - if you itch after doing this that's a clue! (although the mites will not live for long on a human host) try keeping them totally in the dark for 48 hours. this is a good way to break any undesirable chicken habits including persecuting another chicken. Just don't let them out of their ark.
