Ok, so when we bought our chickens the other day the guy told us that they had fleas and he had been treating them. Thing is we didn't know they were sticktight fleas. So I'm wondering, since the chickens have only been here 2 days, if I can vaseline them to smother them, and hope they will fall off eventually? i'm totally squeemish thinking of having to pluck these things off individually. My chickens I have had here don't have them, so I don't think our coop is infested, just the birds that we bought...which are 4 chickens. For whatever reason only the guys chickens had them. WE bought a turkey as well and it is fine. Also what do I use for ants? And regular fleas. The guy mentioned that they took Seven off the market? What kind? I know I still purchased a small shaker of seven for my garden LOL. I'm so confused, and worried about getting an infestation of these nasty fleas, and worried about my chickens eyes.
