Do chickens get fleas??
While checking and dusting tonight, the new girls look pretty good, but i swear one had a couple of fleas??
A decade with chickens, haven't seen this...?

Yes they can have fleas. Do you have straw in your nest boxes?

No straw. They have been free ranging the property but they came with bugs and mites. Almost ready to go in with ours

Ok that's good, the nest boxes won't be infested then. Fleas like to be off and on the host and nest boxes are great places for them to hang out,
