    No. Lice must be treated with a poultry dust or 5% Sevin Powder.

    I've heard of people filling a sock or pantyhose with powder and applying it that way. I just pour a little on the vent and under each wing and massage through feathers. Do some research, you'll also need to treat their coop and nesting boxes.
