    Can anyone tell me the best way to get rid of lice on chickens? I have tried puting permetheran powder on my hens. Is there another good way though? Thank you.

    I have not dealt with lice, only mites. But you want to retreat every week until gone (and you can dissolve the nits with unrefined coconut oil I have read after the bugs are dead). If you don't retreat then the eggs hatch out and they are reinfested.
