Flies and chickens
I've had my flock of 24 hens and 1 rooster for almost four months now. We have screen and metal mesh over the windows in the chicken coop to keep preditors out. I have noticed a lot of flies traped in the screen trying to get out. I leave the chicken door open all the time. So, I'm sure that's how they get in.
Will the flies cause problems with chickens. Do I need to do something to keep the flies down?
