I was checking one of the Cochin girls this afternoon, and she has lice!! We went through battling lice in September, and I thought we got rid of all the nasty little bugs. Apparently not. I just DE'd the heck out of our mixed flock (all bantams, four Cochins, five White Crested Black Polish), and I also spread DE all over the run & coop. Now that THAT's over with, and after a long hot shower, two questions: 1:We're using 'Safer' brand DE, and I just noticed that the bag says there's bug attractant mixed into the DE. Will this hurt the flock? 2: I couldn't positively ID the louse- it was smallish, I think roundish, and FAST. I gather from the Chicken Health Handbook by Gail Damerow that to get rid of lice I should dust every week for two or three weeks. Are all lice treated the same way, since I can't ID the louse? Thanks so much for any help! (Mods, please move this if it belongs in Diseases, I wasn't sure) Edited for clarity.
