    we got a hen a few months ago and she had lice, I dusted her and now she doesn't have any lice (thank goodness!) buut, she still has a lot of dead eggs, im saying dead because she doesn't have lice and those eggs ave just been there, I tried to cut some but theyr very clumped together, anyone have any suggestions as to how to remove? I read some stuff about extra virgin coconut oil and skin so soft lotion (don't really know if its a specific brand or not) if anyone has any other idea's it would bee very much appreciated! thanks heaps

    How long ago did you dust her? They normally suggest a second dusting as the eggs aren't killed and will eventually hatch.

    I dusted her quite alot, maybe 4 or 5 times? I checked her today still no lice but the eggs are clumped together and no sign of hatching from what I can see, but I really hope they don't hatch.. and its been a few months since iv dusted her, maybe 3 or 4 months
