Hello there, I’m relatively new at this, my chickens are about a year old and I noticed my golden laced Wyandotte (who recently went broody) has some black spots around her eyes. The black spots seem to be spreading and are now on the waddles, combs and around the eyes of my other chickens. I have four chickens total: 2 Wyandottes (one golden laced and one silver laced) a booted bantam, and a Rhode Island Red). These are all hens. I was doing some research and I’m going to treat them with Vaseline tomorrow but I don’t know how I’m going to get my girls to stay still while I rub Vaseline on their faces. Any advice would be appreciated! My Rhode Island Red and Bantam are very friendly and will allow me to hold them but the two Wyandottes are very skittish and run away from people. I can’t even pick them up let alone hold them. I think I will be able to get to the golden’s Face since she is broody and won’t leave the nesting box, I can do it while she is in there. I don’t know how I can catch and hold the silver Wyandotte. Also, is there anything I can do to get rid of these fleas faster? I live in northeastern PA near the poconos and from what I’ve read these fleas aren’t even common in our area so I don’t even know how we got them! Can these gross things be spread to me and my son and our other animals (indoor cats)?? I am freaking out!!!! I also noticed the waddles on my golden Wyandotte are getting light in color... is this because she’s broody or is this a major infestation of fleas? I checked her vent for mites and lice and nothing but she is shaking and itching a lot. She also wipes her face on the grass a lot when she’s out to range. Please help! I’m a newbie and I don’t want to lose my flock to these pests!!!
