    We gave away all our adult chickens due to loaded with fleas. My wife is going through cancer treatments so I felt it would be easier to start over. I kept our 21 NHR chicks but now I need to kill what fleas are left. We treated with liquid seven what sould I do next. I intend to repopulate. 1 of the 5 coups.

    The liquid sevin should do the job for you. If you wish, you can use sevin dust in the coop that you intend to use to repopulate. Sevin dust is more persistant. I used to use it on my dogs for flea control, worked great. Works great on chickens too, including lice/mites.
