I think my chickens need worming...have had them a year and never have wormed them...All the worm meds I have looked see at the co-op say to not eat their eggs for 14 days after worming them...I am getting about 2 dozen eggs aday.
Do ya'll know of anything i can use where I don't have to not use or sell their eggs for 14 days???
I did find out I can use Frontline on my chickens for mites and other works and it didn't hurt them..Use Forntline on the chickens and the cats too...alittle goes along way...KAtG

why worm your chickens ? the early bird gets the worm .i was watching my wifes pet chicken foraging near the basement wall last week on the north side and all of a sudden it made a quick swoop and pulled out a night crawler about 8" long and took off head high with its tail (night crawlers ) dragging the ground . yes i know chickens get parasite worms in their gizzards.

Chickens tastebuds are indifferent to hot peppers, feed them some hot peppers or the hot pepper seeds you can buy at any dollar store. The hotness kills worms, and you dont have to worry about eating or not eating the eggs.

This subject has come up before, and some wise one gave this answer, so I can't take credit for it, but whoever did say it, swears by it. I don't worm my chickens as of yet, hadn't needed to as far as I know. Try it and see how it works, like I said, somebody swears by it, I think it was EG that said it. He is an avid chicken fan. :)

hello, my daughter has chickens for her ffa project and she has lost 3 birds and we have never had chickens before and we did hear like a sneeze once or twice and was told it might be worms-how do chickens get worms?
