Lice
« on: July 24, 2011, 09:28 »
Well I think our chickens have had everything, then I discover lice!

We lost one last week after a prolapse, they have just (yesterday) finished a 10 day course of Baytril for respiratory problems (possibly myco), plus they have just finished a course of Flubenvet for worms.

Then this morning I found a small pile of feathers on the floor. They are the little fluffy ones from the rear. I thought initially one of them was starting to moult, but there were no feathers in the sleeping house, which is where I normally start to see dropped feathers when they moult.

Anyway I picked the feathers up to see which chicken they are from, and they definitely have lice on them. I have some frontline to treat them with, but will it be too much for their systems after all the other medication?

Any help would be appreciated.

Staffies are softer than you think.
