    NO!!!! Please never ever try frontline on any animal other than what it is made for!!!! I work in a vets office, we have clients that do that with their cats and they end up killing them. If you want to keep bugs off the birds, i would look into getting some powder lime or a product that says it is safe for chickens.

    Ok, just thought id ask. I don't have fleas on my puppy and wanted to keep it that way, also I have clean birds and wasn't sure if that would have worked. Thanks for your reply.
