    I just drove hours to pick up a 5mo olive egger pullet and found the flock has mites/lice.
    I got one anyways because from what understand they are easy to treat?

    Ihave a flock of 4 EEs that i will be keeping Faarrrr away fromher untill shes trwated.

    Ive been looking online and finding tons of ways to prevent it...

    But how do i treat it?!

    They are white teeny circle deposits located just around her chin/neck area. They're all stuck to the base/lower areas of the feathers.
