    The story dog that attacked my RIR rooster awhile back came back and attacked my cross bred rooster, Goldie. I picked him up to put him in a crate so he could heal up and noticed he haas little white bugs on him. There's not many but I know these issues escalate quick. I'm not sure what they are though so I don't know what to treat with. Also will the bugs effect my family or horses/dogs? Last question, Goldie now seems to have gone blind in both eyes since his attack yesterday, thankfully our other 2 roosters Speck and BirdBird helped to fight off the dog while we weren't home, I've inspected both of them too given the amounts of blood on them but both of them are fine not 1 scratch. I will be calling my vet Monday to set an appointment for Goldie but just wondering if he may possibly get his sight back? My taxes are due to come in Wednesday and I'll be headed to the feed store to get the supplies to build a coop instead of continuing to keep my birds free range. Thanks ahead of time!

    Sounds like bird lice check around their vent. When you can get some poultry dust to get rid of lice. These will not get on you or your other animals bird lice only lives on birds.
