Is there anything I can treat my rooster with today other than DE? The feed stores are all closed on Sundays. I'll buy some DE tomorrow, but I was wondering what I could do for him today?

If it is warm where you are you could try giving him a bath. I found a good web site (some time ago) that said that it does work.

TOH, has the answer. Powder them lightly and be sure not to get the dust too thick in the air they are breathing.

I don't have any 7 dust either, I was wondering if I could bathe him, but with what? What is gentle enough, but would work to kill the lice until I get the dust?

Thanks for your responses!

*bump*

Please I need to know if the shampoo for kittens and puppies will work until I can get the DE from the feed store! I guess I'm a little panicky and want to take care of it now. He seems pretty tired and weak.

did a search on bathing my chickens and found nothing about whether I can use it, so advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have used adams flea and tick shampoo on my show birds. They don't die (the bugs) right away though.

I do recommend using permetherine spray on lice. It will take some time to get rid of them as the eggs will hatch and more will come.
