    I have a broody silkie hen that appears to have mites or lice. Shes currently sitting on a clutch of 8 eggs and they are due to hatch anytime. Is there anything i can do to get rid of the mites/lice without harming the eggs/ chicks? Ps- shes currently set up in a box in my bathroom to stay warm :)
