    I am always working on getting pictures with a blurred background or ultra close up. I like this camera. I'm waiting on another camera that has a special macro lens and hope to photograph bugs and stuff.

    I believe you are right! Tonight everyone gets an inspection with a flashlight and magnifying glass.
    Lucky me, I have yard spray, Home defense for the coop, Sevin, and horse spray. A lot of work!

    You'll need to spray the ground and burn bedding/litter. Flea eggs will be on the soil and in litter. Any type of premise spray will work. Dont forget to remove feeders and waterers when spraying.
    If you have any Advantage, one drop on bare skin on the back of the neck should eliminate them. I've used it on my BSL and BR's without any problems.

    Are the sand fleas different than the fleas a dog gets?Remember,rats carry disease ridden fleas that will affect your flock.

    They are different, CQ. These stick tight fleas hang on like ticks rather than jump or run around. I don't understand how just one bird gets them.

    Here's a link for you CQ: The sand fleas in the link arnt the same as the sand fleas in pics below.
    https://www.vetinfo.com/sand-fleas-on-dogs.html

    There's also sand fleas at beaches that can be used for fishing. They are about the size of a marble. A sand rake is used to dig them out of the sand after a wave washes up on the beach. They are a superb bait for fishermen. Pompano, Black and Red Drum love them.

    Has no spots on her today anywhere. Searched with a flashlight. Nothing. So it must have been some sort of weed seeds, maybe.

    They are evil looking critters.Sounds bad when a dog is infested but can they burrow in a bird?Makes me itch looking at them.Here in Ohio,we have nothing like that or fire ants or the roaches that cause eye worm.I hope it stays that way...

    It must have been stick-tight dirt, LOL
    The roaches here are still hard to get used to. They fly. They surprise you when you least expect it. Thank god we have super chemicals down here.

    I found a small tub of water yesterday and was going to dump it out but it was full of tadpoles.

    She is a really good looking girl!!!How are their personalities?Those tadpoles you found will grow up to be bug eating frogs.I remember those flying roaches from a vacation,sand in every crack and crevice and getting pooped on by seagulls. Oh,and stung by a jelly fish and a sunburn so bad I blistered.I haven't been back since,you all can keep it...:eek:
