    The bird blinked. There's nothing wrong with its eyes. Honestly, the bird looks like it has a REALLY bad infestation of lice. If you fullview the picture, you can see that that stuff on its neck is nits. Give these birds a thorough bath and treat them with something for lice.

    why are the lice so far from the vent? is it that there are so many? I thought it looked like lice eggs too but the location threw me.

    ok, just wanted to be sure. I agree with it having a really bad infestation of lice. Cheap dog flea shampoo and white vinegar works really good to get rid of lice. You can find specifics on how to wash they on BYC

    I usually see them under the wings. I have never seen them on the vents of my chickens. There isnt a certain location they have to be at. I always bath my chickens before and after shows, I have had chickens come home with lice! not very happy when that happens, would think people would make sure their chickens didnt have them before shows, but some just dont care

    I got there about 11 AM. I didnt meet any BYCers. I did enjoy walking around looking at all the chickens with my daughters.

    I'll get a pic of the leg tomorrow, I'm sure its nothing. This being my first year with chickens, I'm still learning what "normal" is for lots of things. As far as the eggs go, we got the BA's because they like to lay in the winter time. Here is it the first day of fall, and they have pretty much gone on strike. It's all good, just for personal use, we don't sell the eggs or anything. Mostly just concerned.
