    We have had two hens die in the last two weeks. They start getting lethargic and the comb and waddle starts to pale and then they're dead in a couple of days.
    Noticed that both had a pretty heavy infestation of lice.
    Did a complete tear down on the coop, scrubbed sprayed , new bedding.
    Any help?
    Thanks, Sonny

    Weigh each bird, dust each bird with poultry dust or Sevin (DE doesn't work) and de-worm with fenbendazole 10% (Safeguard or Panacur, liquid or paste) at 50mg/kg by mouth and repeat in ten days.
