All 10 are 19 week Buff Orpingtons went to let my birds out to free range this evening. One of my girls didn't come out of the coop. She's extremely lethargic. I picked her up to do an exam an found a ton of, what I believe are, lice. I have sprayed down all of them with lice/mite killer, for poultry. It worked because I saw them stop moving. I'll take care of cleaning the coop and run, but my priority is my sick one. We've sprayed her down, dried her off, and fed nutri drench to get some nutrients into her. She seemed cold so we brought the quarantine coop in the house tonight. Is there anything else I can do for her? She's tucking her head under her wing and just sleeping.
