    Hello everyone,
    I have 16 baby chicks that are 1 1/2 month old. One week ago, I found out that they had mites. I treated them with Diatomaceous Earth powder, presure wash the entire cage, air dry the cage, sprinkle DE through out there cage. This morning I check a few of my baby chicks and the lots of the mites are gone. But I notice that their neck have lots of white eggs. My guess is that they are lice eggs. I try combing them with a flea comb, but the eggs won't come out. The eggs are on the feather pretty good. Any advices to take care of this problem, greatly appreciated. Thanks, TC

    I believe you can use seven dust. I'm not positive though because I've never had chickens.
