Living in South TX has its pros and cons. One of the cons is FLEAS! We have been infested with fleas this year and the sand in my yard doesn't help either. My poor chickens have fleas on their combs and around their eyes. I read once that you can rub cooking oil on their combs to smother the fleas and kill them. Does anyone know of a safe method to rid chickens of fleas? Any help is much appreciated.
