Lice!!!! not getting as many eggs as I thought I should be getting, so checked a chicken tonight on the roost. Yup, lice. dang it! Worst thing is I'm a little overloaded right now. Am booked and can't take time off work right now til maybe thurs or friday. I have to be on the road tomorrow at 7 am, am too tired to tackle anything right now, and fresh hay is over at Sue's for storage. And the meter pole is shorting out for some reason (electrician coming next week) and I need power to shop vac that coop out.
I guess, I can at least dust them in the morning while it is dark. Then clean out coop as soon as I can take a day off. and I feel guilty because I really should be out there right now dusting the poor girls. shoot, I'm a rotten chicken keeper.
