Sure ...if you want to taint your eggs and meat foreever.

Frontline is banned on food poultry per FARAD.

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."

Here's an article that may give you better choices/options for controlling/treating/eradicating the sticktight fleas.

From the limited information I have read, here on BYC and google searches, they are a bit tricky to get rid of. Dedication and follow-up in treating seems to be the key to success.
