    Hi,

    I discovered many lices on my chicken this morning. This is a little video of this lice. No lice eggs (nits) a the moment. It's not a mite, not a northern fowl mite. Do you agree with me, that is lice?

    Got a magnifying glass to help you identify what type of lice it is? Here's a link with pics for I.D.

    I recommend that you dust your birds with sevin dust, repeat dusting in 7-10 days. Do the same thing inside your coop and nests.

    Thanks soooo much for the link! It's very instructive. [​IMG]

    So, now I'm sure is chewing lice. I have pyrethrins powder, is it ok?

    What do you recommends? 1 treatment/day for 7 days, after 1 treatment/week for a month?

    Pyrethrin powder is fine, go ahead and use it.
