Hi, our neighbours keep chickens in their back garden. Ever since we moved here we've had an incredible number of flies coming into the house, I've been told they could be coming from chickens, is this possible? Would it depend on how often they are cleaned out? I can't think what else it could be. Every time I open the window they seem to pour in. I like the chickens, by the way!

It could be the chickens - you could ask them if they use something like easibed which has citronella in.

(Should add, easibed is a GOOD thing to use - the citronella repels the flies!)
