The chicken mites will not live on your dog- their life cycle requires them to feed on poultry. The occasional 'chicken' mite can be easily killed with a pyethrin based flea/lice shampoo. The key is to shampoo well, and leave it on for 10 mins before rinsing.
I would then follow this up with an oatmeal based conditioner.
If the itching is persisting, then I would suggest a visit to your local veterinarian. There may be fleas, dog lice, or an allergy.
