hey everyone. i have just returned home from 2 months away. I had someone looking after my hens (3) and she messaged me to say just one had lice. she used treatment cleaned the coop and apparently they went away. she then said the same chook was clucky and sat on the eggs all day. As soon as i got home i noticed that there where feathers everywhere. so many that it looked like a cat had tried to attack her....BUT SHE IS PULLING THEM OUT HERSELF! she isn't clucky but sitting on the ground all day and a lot skinnier than before (she was head mistress so very fat, now one of the others has taken over that role). So far i have given her some healthy food and have some garlic soaking in oil now for them to all have tomorrow. They will be coming inside tonight as we have a cyclone coming through here tomorrow. I will keep an eye on her but just not too sure what is wrong.. maybe depressed because i was away and resorted to self harm (we spend a lot of time together). Open to any suggestions!
