Yesterday me and my little girl was our at the hen house to visit our chicky's. We love to hold our chicky's! Guess what was crawling on her arm & mine...something that looked like a louse, very small straw colored louse. It was just one bug on us each (that I seen) we stripped and showered immediately and the clothes are out on the line. I've doing some reading this AM about it. I'm going to do chicky inspection this afternoon after work. I have thick, all waist length hair and I can't image getting lice from these birds. I'm really bummed and need some inspiration. I just got all these birds 7/1 and I've been battling what is suspected to be infectious coryza and now lice??? I know there are a lot of chicken pet owners that hold your birds; how are you not getting infested yourselves? I'm going to dust the fire out of them with Seven dust every 7 days for a few weeks. And spread it all over the hen house too. I'd appreciate any advise. I'm really sad I can't hold my chicky's!
