I am brand new to having chickens, and already I'm discouraged. I bought 4 day old chicks. One, which was a silkie, was not right from the start, and lived only a week. To replace that one, we went to a lady that was selling them and bought one. By this time, my other chicks had graduated to the outside coop. The one we bought is a couple weeks older. I looked it over and didn't see any mites or lice, but it's now apparent that it had had them. We've had them all together in the same coop now for about a month. The other day I was holding the silkie and noticed lice. I looked for just a bit and found two on her wings. Now I imagine they all have it. What do I do? I've googled some, but there are so many different ways to deal with it. I thought I'd ask here for some tried & true advice. Also, are we safe to hold them still? Can we become the hosts of this lice too?
