These are the best pictures I could get because I had to hold the chickens while my 4 year old shot them with my phone :-)
This morning I noticed dirty butts and bald spots on 2 of my 4 BO's, and after research, I'm thinking that it's poultry lice? I cleaned out the coop and stood staring for a while to see if I could see any moving little buggers but I didn't see anything. I dusted their butts with DE as a precaution because it's all I have right now and didn't know what it was.
Do you think that's what it is? And I read a few products that the Chicken Chick recommends to treat.....can I pick something up at TSC to remedy this? I do not live in a rural area and there are no other agri stores around here. Even TSC is a 45 minute drive.
Can an experienced chicken keeper give me any advice? I've only got a year under my belt and these are the first "pets" we've ever had, so I'm a little green....
