    Buy some Seven Dust (or it's called Poultry Dust at the farm store). Powder them up reall good! (They should look like they've been hit with a giant bag of flour) haha

    Keep them isolated from your current flock......Repeat in 10 days.

    Quote:That happened to me once, when I bought some chickens from a show, and my husband and I were carrying them back to the truck, and we started to see these little bugs crawling on our shirts! We were soooo grossed out!

    But it's really very common.......I've also had chickens 4 years now, and one winter, my flock got lice. That made me so angry....I think it came from wild birds taking shelter in my hen house.....That's the only thing I can think of....

    Don't worry! It'll be ok!
