I recently moved on a farm, brought my silkies with me and they are now living with the farms silkies. I discovered that the chickens at the farm had quite an infestation of lice. So it'll be bath time for them asap and a good coop cleaning etc.. Now the question is, not knowing anything about turkeys. The silkies have 3 turkeys for neighbors. I'm assuming the turkeys would have the lice also? I do not planning on throwing the turkeys in a tub of water and giving them a bath. Just not happening. What do you guys find to be the easiest and safest way to get rid of these pests on a turkey? Does a powder really do the job? Especially if they have all these eggs, as the silkies do? That is what the silkies have. Lice are yellowish/brownish in color. Can't think of the name, but that's what the eggs look like. I haven't had a close look at the turkeys yet, I till try to take a peek tomorrow if they let me. If I am not mistaken, the pyrethrins will kill the buggers. Would it be totally stupid to spray the turkeys with a fly spray made for horses with pyrethrins? Not sure if a spray like that is safe for a bird. All I know is that my silkies had the lice a year ago and I got rid of them by bathing them and thoroughly cleaning the coop. Any marvelous ideas for the turkeys for a non-turkey person?
