    I was told this morning that baby chicks can carry lice. Is this true? And if so what can be done about it. I was told about a type of tablet that you put in the water.

    Only if they have been in contact with adults or the outdoors. Chicks that have been hatched in an incubator and live indoors should not have lice.
