    BTW hair dye that has an ammonia base will kill the lice and dissolve the glue that holds the nits onto the hair shaft. Don't change the kids hair color just use the same shade. It is way safer than using the stuff you buy from the pharmacist. That is a nerve poison. There are cumulative effects (i.e. the more you use it the more it will affect you). I have used the hair dye and can vouch for it's effectiveness. You must get the type that uses ammonia. It is the ammonia that is doing the killing.

    I have one question
    Does this have to be done with an incubator?
    I do have an incubator but,
    The reason I'm asking is because I have
    A broody pekin bantam and I hope
    To set cream legbar eggs under her.
    So can I enter with her?
    Thanks

    No, a broody is fine! That's what I'm hoping to use, but we'll see.
