Step one: Don the rubber gloves, elbow length if you can get them.
Step two: Enlist a ‘chicken holder’.
Step three: Get all your things together; a big bucket, lice wash, warm water and a dousing cup.
Step four: Show no fear. You don’t want to prance about like a sissy – not in front of your chicken and definitely not in front of the ‘chicken holder’.
You’re a poultry keeper – now act like it!
With my toes curled up inside my gumboots, I gave those lice a bath they will never forget. More accurately, one that they will never remember as most of them died. I used a natural enviro-friendly product called NeemPet Wash. It seems to be friendly with everything but lice.
