    Hi peeps
    I'm new to this, I need some help.
    I purchased some older olive eggers (2yrs) I was told they where "molting" not so, LICE! I did catch on and treat everyone before it got through the small flock I have, keeping a close eye and doing lots of cleaning.
    How do I deal with the lice eggs? can I get them off?
    Do I have to wait for those feathers to fall out? (I hope not)

    Hello [​IMG] and Welcome to BYC!
    I'm sorry to hear about your hens! [​IMG] I've never had much experience with lice so I personally can't help much but maybe this article from the learning center can answer some of your questions: Mites & Lice - Treatment & Prevention. Good luck with your chicken raising!
