    Hi
    how sure are you that they are mites? macrocheles are preditory mites and have no interest in poultry , living in the soil and eating things such as gnat larvae
    im just wondering if its earth hoppers that you are seeing in your soil - theylive under pots and wood and when disturbed jump like a flea . the good news is that they are not insects but rather related to shrimps and as such are a good source of protein for your poultry.
    hope this helps
