I tend to see this product as a pretty safe one, since cats do lick their fur clean. I am not sure how oils would work and act on feathers. They may repel the fleas, and ticks though. I never encountered such pests in my flock, but did get some mites a while ago. I used Sevin Dust on the chickens. Chickens lived thru that with no ill effects. I do like to avoid chemicals as much as possible, but some chemicals are not all that dangerous.
Do your chickens currently have an infestation of fleas, or ticks.?
If you do decide to use DE, make sure you follow safety guidelines for yourself. Avoid breathing in DE dust. Use a Mask.

I have dust on see picture below.and the DE pic below .my hen had leg mites a few weeks ago but I used the vasaline method and she since then has been good. I just saw the cat flea and tick medication and thought I'd buy it just in case since the ingredients in it was all natural oils and not so much of any harsh chemicals. I just like to be ready and like to have things handy at home is all. And thought I'd ask about this cat product to see if it was safe for chickens
