    I'm feeling a little freaked out right now. A visit to see my friends two turkeys has left me itching like mad. I told another friend and they laughed and said I had turkey mites. I googled turkey mites or tics and frankly the info I got has scared the hell out of me. Can anyone help with a little info...before I go screaming to my doctor and end up looking a real wally...thanks in advance

        Well, he bought from chicks and now they're about 5 months, he said they were very friendly and so I went to see them. They are white with red heads_I like animals and birds_curious I guess_

          well if he is not itching (and I would presume he is around them more than you), then why wouldnt he have the same symptoms if in fact the itching is caused by the turkeys?

            I asked him and he came over_he said he had been bitten in the last few days, but thought it was a type of fly. The thing is I've found one or two on my arms and they're like a tiny freckle. I looked it up on google, google said that's what a mite looked like_but then the advice went from them getting into your blood and crazy stuff so I didn't read any more_plus I am covered in sore red bites!
