Re: Feathers Being Eaten - Mite?

It looks like the free image host Billy was using was serving up inappropriate adverts. I have therefore removed the link to the images and attached them to the message instead - this way we don't get to see the ladies ;) As for the problem - this looks like Depluming Mite.
