    Can you use dog shampoo on chickens? I use dog topical flea & tick treament so I'm guession the shampoo wouldbe ok? What type of shampoo is best for chickens?

    I'd be careful. Have read here that at least one brand of flea shampoo for dogs is harmful; sorry, do not remember which one. Maybe do a search by brand name here or in Google before trying it.

    Not sure shy you would need to do this if you are already using another flea treatment on them. Shampooing chickens strips their natural oils, too.
