I need some advice and the sooner the better! I got a trio of silkies recently and I love them and they are wonderful. BUT I just discovered they have lice and scaly leg mites. I pretty much got how to treat the leg mites but I am not clear on the best method for the lice. Also they are in quarantine separate from my flock but they are in the same yard. What is the best way to prevent transfer to the rest of my flock? I know I am going to be handling the silkies to treat them (I also want them to stay tame). What do I need to do to go from them to my other pen/coop? I REALLY don't want a case of lice in my flock, besides the pain of treating them all, I am putting them in the county fair in 2 weeks. \\ Would an initial bathing help treatment like dusting? How exactly is the best way to dust the chickens? After treating them with dust like sevin dust will it be safe to harvest the eggs? help!!!!
