Ticks! Gross! I can check my dogs and cat but not my chickens. What can I put down in my yard that will not harm my chickens and ducks? Last summer was my first year with chickens and in the past I have always used Eliminator, flea and tick spread. Will this harm my chicks? I have a few that get out of the run no matter what I do.

I recommend guinea fowl. Nature's best tick control!
