    I hear Guinea Hens eat ticks like it is their job. I don't see a real reduction in ticks when my girls are out and about... Chickens love to scratch around the edges and dig up your mulch...

    I know they eat ticks, but I would think fleas are too small and too fast for them to focus in on and grab.
