lice eggs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi peeps

I'm new to this, I need some help.

I purchased some older olive eggers (2yrs) I was told they where "molting" not so, LICE! I did catch on and treat everyone before it got through the small flock I have, keeping a close eye and doing lots of cleaning. 

How do I deal with the lice eggs? can I get them off? 

Do I have to wait for those feathers to fall out? (I hope not)

Hello :frow and Welcome to BYC!

I'm sorry to hear about your hens! :( I've never had much experience with lice so I personally can't help much but maybe this article from the learning center can answer some of your questions: Mites & Lice - Treatment & Prevention. Good luck with your chicken raising!

Welcome to Back Yard Chickens ! :D

Good luck with the lice.

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
