Lice powder

Recommended Posts

Hi Sarah


you need to make sure that under the wings is dusted thoroughly as you have done. Also, work in well around the neck area - make sure that you part feathers to really get down to the base of them. Finally, make sure you dust well around the vent area.

I've decanted the powder into an old talc container that puffs the powder out when squeezed. I manage to hold the hen on the ground with one hand and lift up its wings etc and puff the powder and then rub it in with the other.


I also put powder in the dust bath and the Aubiose that lines the nesting box. I reckon some will get into the right place that way.

How often am I meant to do all this? Is it as a precaution or only when you see lice. And is lice powder the same as mite powser? (I have mite powder, but the shop only had 1 kind)


I use Barrier Red Mite powder. It does for both. I try to do it once a week.
