    Hey all! Question on mosquitos. My coop and run are located on the edge of my yard and the surrounding woods. There are a lot of mosquitos there. Some years are better than others but this year is particularly bad. Although the mosquitos bother me quite bad do they pester and cause any health problems for my three ladies?

    Fowl pox and a few other diseases can be passed on to chickens from mosquitoes. Check out this solution to a mosquito problem...pretty neat!!! Possibly even a DIY project! http://skeeterbag.com/wordpress/how-it-works/

    Best wishes,
