Is it a hen? If so, look for specks of blood on her eggs....also if you go into the coop at night with a flashlight....you can see little red mites that feed on them at night and hide in the coop during the day.
Look at her/his vent area and see if it looks chaffed or red...any signs of irritation...
I dust mine 2 x a year (lice/mites or not) with Python dust from TSC. I have not had lice or mites in 2 years.

Also, sprinkle it in the coop and in dust holes ;)
