Don't have a picture yet, but here's the scoop... 1- My Silkie is smaller than my other 3 hens. They have taken to picking on her. 2- The Silkie is now hanging in the roost much of the time to avoid the bullies. Stopped laying. 3- I brought the Silkie inside and put her in my little used Shower Stall because she needed some TLC and I wanted to get her out of Hurricane Sandy. 4- I gave white Silkie a mild bath in the sink. Let her dry overnight in the shower stall. 5- Was holding white Silkie in lap and noticed what I at first thought were small slivers of leftover dirt... but then noticed they moved. 6- At first I thought they were fleas... but they looked smaller and thinner. They are long, like grey rice, not round. 7- Put Silkie back with other hens. She returned to roost. SO... what bug am I dealing with and how do I get rid of it? No doubt my other hens have the same bugs, but they are dark colored and I don't hold them as much, so I probably would never notice. Secondly, is my Silkie doomed to repeated bullying by my other bigger girls? Are my two options either to re-home her or to permanently segregate her? Thanks.
