    I've been finding a flea in my clothing here & there, and bites in various places, mostly on my legs. There is no evidence of them in the chicken house or on the chickens, and none of our immediate neighbors have outdoor pets. It looks like we will need to treat our yard, but I need to know what kind of conventional sprays or powders are safe for the chickens to be around.

    Thanks!

    I am curious to find out as well. Fleas are really bad this year.

    I am so itchy today, and keep feeling like something is crawling on my head! (I've never found a flea on my head...but UGH!) :tongue
