Hi welcome-byc.gif

You could use sevin dust or DE Earth on your roo to get rid of these fleas. Could it be he has lice rather than fleas? Either way quick treatment would be best for him as blood sucking parasites can cause them to go down hill quick. Do you have a good dust bath for him too so he can get rid of some himself? Here is a great article on mites and lice ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/mites-lice-treatment-and-prevention

Good luck, I hope you are able to eradicate these pests soon.
