    We need a little more information to help you out..... Is this a chicken question or a general flea/pet question? Are you sure they are fleas? Any pics?

    Can anyone help me as well with the lice problem, i have already dusted them twice with lice and mite powder and they still wont go and now my little 2 week chick is riddled with them and it's horrible. My dad reckons that Chickens will always have lice and your just reducing the numbers when you treat them, is this true, should chickens always have some lice or do they have to be completely free of them???

    I really need help with this, it thoroughly annoys and frustrates me because I've heard they can eventually die form them and it puts them of laying and i dont want my future chicks getting them or any other new chicken or my new ducks that are coming in a couple of weeks. Please Please Please help.
