I just bought some Silkie chicks and discovered they are covered in lice! They are only 5 to 7 days old. What can I use to get rid of the lice that won't harm them? They are so little I am afraid to use anything until I can get some feedback or advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just take a little bit of Sevin dust and powder them very well with it. It'll kill the lice, and it's actually made to be used on gardens so it won't hurt them if they end ingesting a little bit of it. You'll want to clean out their brooder and powder it down too and then repeat again in ten days to kill anything that may have hatched since the first dusting.
