    What kind of flea control can we use in the yard and in the coop pens? Chickens are allowed to roam free during the day and penned up at night time. I would not want to use anything that would cause injury to the chickens or eggs. Suggestions are greatly welcomed.

    Off hand I can only think of SEVIN dust or spray.Maybe you can use certain flea sprays as I have read of people using them on their chickens.

    you cant do anything about the yard unless you don't want to
    let your chickens out for a couple days
    for the barn wash it then demiter would probably work
    and put demiter on your birds too you can get it at
    Petsmart I use it on my birds and it seems to work

    if you have any more questions PM me because I don't respond to
    threads

    hope i helped,
    Jackie
