    What is on my friend's chickens necks? She is heading out of town soon and needs to treat them and have animal sitter know what to do.

    I'm also concerned because my son picked her chickens up and came home and didn't change his clothes before he did chores. We had a very lengthy conversation about bio security afterwards but am nervous about my flock now.

    Hard to tell, but it looks like lice egg clusters.

    If it looks like this then it's definitely lice eggs.
