Northern fowl mite infestation?

My buff Orpington Berta had this mite infestation after a long period of wet, cold weather. Several rounds of treatment with diatomacious earth helped, but she had a milder infestation about 90 days later, which was easier to treat with DE.

 

None of the other chickens (OEG and ISA Brown) got infested, nor were they treated with DE.
