Hello. My chicken has either mites or lice. Her comb is smaller and pale (1 & a 1/2 years old) and her feathers are ragged. Shes all lethargic and depressed and hasn’t laid an egg in a few months.

She has either lice or mites, i think its lice. How should i begin treating this? I have lime and diatomaceous earth. What should i go pick up and how should i begin?
 
There are many brands, I'll picture one below that I have gotten at TSC in the past. Each product brand should have mixing instructions on the bottle if it's a concentrate. There are some that come ready to use.

You may need to treat more than once, and if you remove the nits that are usually gathered in bunches at the base of feathers, it will help get rid of them.
