Can cats and chickens get mites from goats? If so, how do you treat each animal for them?

There are chicken mites that can cause dermatitis in other animals. Lice are generally species-specific.

For exact diagnosis, I would suggest you consult your veterinarian. He or she should also be able to help you with control.
