I am looking for a group of fowl to help rid my yard of ticks!! We have bugs GALORE here and I'm not big into spraying my entire yard. I have acres upon acres of land, but am looking for help mainly with the yard and garden. I've looked into both for a while now and get kind of mixed reviews. What I've concluded: Guinea hens are great for ticks but don't harm the garden as much, but sounds like they will roam far and aren't very social. Our neighbors have chickens but still have problems with ticks and uproot the garden. Any ideas/comments/opinions?
