How do you know if your chickens have Red Mite problems? You will notice two things; firstly your egg production will start to go down as the chickens need to replace the lost blood taken by the Red Mites(which means less energy to produce eggs), and secondly the chickens will start to peck each other where they see the infestation usually just at the base of the tail feathers.
At this point the problem is likely to be causing stress and is getting serious. Keep a close eye out for any pecking behaviour, and also any bald, bloody patches on your birds.
