EVERYONE WHO OWNS CHICKENS SHOULD READ THIS.

I was lucky enough to participate in a study over the summer to help continue the research for non-toxic and natural solutions to lice and mites.

UC Riverside finally released their findings and have written a short communication.

Hopefully these detailed images will help everyone to properly identify your chickens lice and/or mite issues.  

 

 

There is a brief write up here and here.

I really don't like how this is from just one part of California, as things may vary state to state.

Things have to start somewhere.   

 

This study was done because of the increase in backyard chicken's in California.   Thus, the department responded to what they had been hearing and seeing. 

 

Write a letter or contact a local research department in your town and ask them to do a study.

My area wouldn't be the best to study, we are on an island.
