HELP! I have had 3 chicks hatch. One suddenly died this morning. When it did, I noticed lice start crawling from it. I have never thought about chicks having lice and have not had a problem in the past. I tried to find information on here but there is not much. I cleaned their box and dusted them with poultry dust and the lice just crawled off them. The chicks are active for the most part and eating but not as healthy looking as other chicks. I am worried about the effects of the dust on them. How often should I dust them? Is there anything else I should be doing?
