Hi, I have 2 chickens that have lice. I know lots of people have been asking how to get rid of lice, and I did a search, and found that I should wash them. So I just got done washing my chickens first with salt and water, then with soap and water ( I used a shampoo for rabbits, hope thats okay), then with a rise of water and vinegar. I saw lots of lice come off in the bath, but after drying them, they still had lice. My chickens have been broody and now have week old chicks, so I am not sure what to use to kill the lice that will not hurt the chicks. Also the chickens have been in my house, in the bathtub. Will the other birds in my house catch the lice that the chickens have? I hope not. Also I have been reading that people can not catch the lice from chickens, but they were crawling on my arms and that as I was washing them and now I'm grossed out. I really hope that people can not catch bird lice. also will the lice spread in the house? I am going to ask my friend who owns a petstore to see if he can order any thing for bird lice, is there any product that would be best to use. I do have sevin dust, but it is for plants, and I am not sure were to find DE. I am going to wash them again in a few weeks, but I want to get rid of the lice as soon as possible. thankyou in advance for your replies and suggestions.
