I have Silkies, and I just found out they have bugs....I've been searching on here for pics and answers but? I noticed it when I saw one of my young white pullets didn't look so good and she's thin. I've only noticed this today. I thought since she has such a HUGE crest that maybe she just can't see her water & food and is losing some weight. So I brought her inside and trimmed her crest and thats when I saw....just 1 little white bug running past her eye. I then looked under her wings where I think I saw some eggs maybe? and a few more white bugs. I'm guessing these are lice from what I read. Then I decided to go look at the rest of her body and there are a TON, I mean covering her body......reddish, brownish bugs? They are bigger than the white ones. I don't see the white ones on her body, only under the wing and vent area and theres only a few of them. The red bugs are only on her body, not around the vent or under the wing area? They are all around the base of her feathers. I've never had bug problems that I was aware of before. She drank and ate alot for me and seems ok right now. Can chickens have both mites and lice at the same time? I'm going to do more searching on treatment....Thanks!
