im probably not going to be of any help answering your question but.. why wouldnt you let your girls eat the ticks??? lots of chickens love to eat them shouldnt take anytime at all for them to clean up your yard.. and some people put frontline on their chickens to help control mites,lice,fleas but i wouldnt think eating it from the grass would be good for them... Guess it depends on where you live and how many ticks you have....

Wondering when i lost the girl that use to dance in the rain and sang when i cleaned and made love outside in the sun. seems like it was yesterday but yesterday was so many years ago.. that girl has been replaced with someone who seems to be what im told we are suppose to be at this age.. I am my mother, My grandmother and her Mother before her.. I am wisdom,,, But I miss my young Spirit....`````

We have so many, and with 3 dogs it keeps the population down, even when we spray we have them, but not infested..the deer live in our yards :( but this would be the first time we let the girls in this area and wanted to make sure it was safe..I have seen that some use frontline on their chickens.

Frontline is not approved for use on any food animals, including chickens, where we eat their eggs or meat.  I'd definitely not let them out in it!  I doubt it's approved for farm fields, crops, or grazing animals,  which includes poultry!  No herbicides or insecticides  (except permethrin in the coop)  should be used, if you are eating eggs or meat from those birds.  Have the pest control company show you IN WRITING where it's okay to use with livestock.  I doubt that they can.  You could call your ag extension agent, or your state poultry experts, to find out.  Also FARAD. org is a good site.  Mary

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!!!

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