We've had our chickens for 18 weeks now. Earlier this week my wife discovered a bunch of weird bumps on her body. She's a bit of a germ-a-phobe and was terrified they were bed bugs. Not a chance. Then her friend told her her dog has fleas. She attended a birthday party at her house over the weekend. Her co workers "confirmed" to her they were in fact flea bites. I come home from work tonight and she's in tears telling me that somehow they are now poultry mites and they have infested our house. She's scared of the chickens and never handles them or let's them out of the coop. The only time she's even remotely close to the chickens is when she throws feed through the fence for them. As I type this she is bagging up all our bedding to throw out and our clothes to wash. We've never had any problems like this with our chickens before. Just wondering what the best way would be to check them out? Take all 5 to the vet? Is it something I can do myself? She also tells me these alleged mites are only attracted to girls. Any thoughts?
