Lice & Mites

LICE:

Lice eggs on feather shaft
Lice and Eggs on White Chicken Vent

‘Mallophaga’.  Lice are light sensitive and scurry away when the feathers are parted. Young lice are pin head size and white, while adult lice are usually a brown colour.

Areas to look for lice are under the wing, around the parsons nose and around the feathers below the cloaca. Lice are transmitted between birds by direct contact. There is no part of the life cycle away from the birds. Eggs hatch within a few days, and the eggs are usually visible in chronic infections as fans of eggs, particularly under the wing.

MITES:

Red mites on Metal Chicken Pen
Red Mites on Australorp Chickens

are also known as red, grey, and roost mites.  They can live in the human home.  They can also lead to anaemia, causing pale wattle and combs.  Sometimes chickens will refuse to lay in nesting boxes infested with mites.  They easily kill young chickens and broody hens.  As they are nocturnal, you will not find them on your chickens during the day.  Instead, during daylight hours, they hide in the nooks and crannies of your coop.  Once laid, they grow to adulthood by day 10.  They can live in a vacant chicken coop for up to 5 months.  They use poultry as a mobile cafeteria and suck blood during the nights, so they are not usually visible during the day time. These poultry mites are pin sized.

Australorps on Grass, Maraylya NSW Evans Chickens
Australorps

Here at Evans Chickens we have families of pure breed Australorp, Light Sussex and Dark Barred Plymouth Rocks chickens who are enjoying the grass that has grown after the recent rain. Many of our chickens have or are in the process of molting and as a result are not laying any eggs – all of their energy is being put into growing feathers and restocking vitamins in their bodies for the coming breeding season.

Some of the young pullets that we kept from this year are just beginning to lay, but this is mainly the Australorp pullets. The Light Sussex and Barred Rock breeds seem to be very influenced by diminished daylight hours and as a result we are seeing maybe one barred rock egg a day and no light sussex eggs.

As a result we are not currently incubating as we are not collecting enough eggs to justify the cost of running the incubators, brooders and purchasing vaccines (which usually is a minimum quantity of 1000 doses). Hopefully by July we can again fill the incubator and have some chicks available for purchase.

We are missing the opportunity to enter the agricultural shows this year as some of our birds are looking magnificent. COVID-19 has certainly had an effect on our lives – seems that everyone has finally had time to put in the chook house that they where always going to build.

Whilst we have always practiced farm bio-security, times have changed and so have we. We have been registered with DPI for some years & as a result we have upped our bio-security to comply the NSW DPI Salmonella Enteritidis Control Order. Whilst we have never had any report-able diseases on the property, we have taken these measures to keep it that way. This means that visitors may only be in designated areas and we ask for peoples co-operation with this.

2019-2020 have been challenging to all of us on many fronts – heat, fire, drought, flood and now possible isolation. Take time to enjoy your day and may your chickens give you hours of delight as you watch their “chicken tv” and their antics.

Re-chickening Lord Howe Island

We have supplied chickens to Lord Howe Island after the chickens on the island where removed as part of the rodent eradication program.

Our chickens have become the islands newest residents and will be the producers of the islands eggs for the next few years. Interestingly there are no foxes or predator mammals on the island so the girls should live a sweet life.

Waiting for our flight…..

We were chosen to supply Lord Howe Island as we could meet their requirements of vaccination, disease free and parasite free pullets and were able to safely deliver them to their flight from Port Macquarie to the Lord Howe. The pilot of Eastern Air did a great job of flying them at low altitude but was a little put off by their aroma after 2 hours in the cabin with them.

We hope to get some pictures of the ladies in their new home and will share with you when we receive them.
