I have recently gotten two new silkie hens. Shortly after getting them home, I began inspecting them. All looked good except for bugs that I saw crawling on their skin. After doing a little bit of research, I found that the bugs were chicken body lice. I have had chickens for four years and never had this problem. Now, two weeks after getting them, one of the silkies is broody. I was wondering if anybody had any idea of what I could do to get rid of these bugs for good before introducing them to my other silkies without harming the eggs under the broody hen. I have put a tub of sand in the coop and some on the ground. Any help at all would be appreciated.
