    My girls have a few (like 2) tiny white flakes on their backs. Someone said lice looks like dandruff. The girls are on the medicated starter. They are 7 weeks. Are there any photos? I didn't find any through the search feature.

    You are not really apt to see lice unless you are looking for them. They hang out near the skin and lay their eggs near the base of the feathers.
