I live on long island and we have ticks. I've heard chickens eat them as well as other pests. I'm considering getting some because we've had a mild winter and last year I found one on me. So, have you cared for chickens? ..and what was your experience?Answer Question

I have chickens. We don't have fleas or ticks, here, so I cannot speak to that. Chickens are interesting and dumber than dirt, although they seem to out smart us quite often. They can be smelly and you need to keep there coop fairly clean. They can and will poop everywhere including in their food and water. Ours are decent layers. And nice eaters of leftovers.
this is a good website
