I have just given my girls a check over as I noticed that the BO was losing a lot of her fluffy feathers around her vent and I was not sure whether it was moulting. To my horror, I have discovered lice and eggs glued to the bottom to her tail feathers just below her vent. I have the necesary powder to cover her and her friends (what's the best way to do this by the way) but my question is what do you do with the eggs? They are stuck fast and will not move? Do you leave them, would a bath remove them with an appropriate lice shampoo? Not sure where to begin. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. We are having so much rain at the moment that getting the hens very wet worries me as it's not warm enough outside to dry them without the fear of them getting very cold.
