So we've been keeping the chickens in the run (covered in netting) as per DEFRA rules. Every time we have been to see them for the last few weeks we've been getting bites. Ruled out red mite etc as no visible signs but managed to catch one of the buggers today and it's fleas. How on earth do we get rid of fleas while keeping the chickens in the run?? Any advice?!
Sorry I can't help as I didn't even realise they could get fleas . I did have a brief google and saw an ad for some louse powder that said it killed fleas as well so maybe you can find something you can sprinkle all around the run and in the coop and hope it does the job? The one I saw said not to put directly on the birds but I assume there must be some product that you can do that with. Think I'd ring the vet and ask if there is anything like Advocate or Frontline that would be safe for them?
