Post a pic of comb.

Several pests can feed on combs...not sure about sand fleas tho.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I would say yes they can. At the coastal areas (port aransas) sand fleas can be a big problem with animals. And they are horrible to treat(yard wise) because they burrow in the sand and escape the poison you might want to look into flea medication you can put on your chickens. Maybe natural oils. Also i agree post a picture, and are you sure its not some thing else and are sand fleas a problem in your area?
