    My name is Andrea and I just started taking care of A baby chick that was abandoned because of A Nonworking leg. And I believe it has lice, I know for sure it had fleas I believe Lol so I took those off. But now these little bugs crawl off and I kind of squish them with my fingers and they die. How do I get rid of them? I was reading and some people say front line, but for like bigger chickens, what can I use? I need help lol

    Frontline and Sevin are not approved for chickens in the US, and permethrin dust or spray works great, and is fine to use. Mary
