    My cochin hen just hatched 3 austrailian spotted bantams yesterday and I discovered today that there may be a lice problem...I saw them, UGH. So how old do the babies need to be to treat them and can you treat ducks with the same dust as chickens? I can't believe I found lice, I really work had keeping things as clean as possible in there run and coop.
