    What can I do? The 2 new Black Cochins we just bought have been raised in a store and have never dealt with this problem before. What should I do????[​IMG]

    Gnats!! Are you in south GEORGIA? Try posting on the Yo Georgia threads, certainly someone there deals with this. I live in middle GA, above the Gnat line.

    OR, try adding a fan to your coop? If they are bothered by the bugs, it would blow them off.
