    Noticed 2 of my girls have lice around their vents. I don't want to dust them with any chemicals. Yes I do use DE in the coop bedding but would like to kill the critters on them? Suggestions? Thanks

    Yes you can, make sure it is marked for pets and don't get it in their eyes.

    Yes, I think that flea shampoo is fine. Just be careful not to drown them or get it into their eyes, and they'll be fine.
