My twin doelings have little scabby(maybe) feeling bumps under their throat area and by base of ears. What could this be?? I keep my barn clean. I use pine shavings for bedding as well as the waste hay that drops from the feeders. They share a chainlink "wall" with the big girls. The black flies have been bad but not for a few days...rain rain rain. Could it be mites?mange? Can I treat them safely with anything at this age? Ahh! I don't know how they could catch anything as much cleaning as I do out there!

biting flies will leave sores...Mites are more likely than lice since its localized..if they are tiny little scabs...then I would thing flies...if the area is scabby scaly.dry then Mites...at one month old maybe pymectin spray will help..just spry on your hand and rub it in...wear gloves..
