Seems there's a new disease with those little buggers.

at least there's this...

Luckily, one dosage of antibiotics seems capable of eliminating the disease.

Chickens eat ticks. We need to start a free range chicken farm at the J.

Guinea Fowl are more efficient than chickens at tick eating (they only eat insects) and require less care. But it is harder to find their eggs.
