    Our property borders the woods and we have ticks. [​IMG] I HATE ticks. [​IMG]:mad: One of the main reasons that we got the chickens was to eat the ticks. Apparently they can't keep up. [​IMG] what I am wondering is, if anyone has used cedarcide for tick control with chickens? We used it before the chickens and had good results and I'd like to use it again, but don't want to harm the chickens.
    Any Advice?

    Thanks!

    I don't know, they say cedar fumes are toxic to chickens, although apparently they do tolerate some exposure as some people sprinkle some cedar chips in with other bedding to control odor, for example. Guess it depends what it's made of and how it smells.
