Chicken worms! Worming experts please !! - Page 3

post #21 of 24

i would like to know if anyone has used cloves for worming their chickens?  i got a big bag of DE and now find out it may not work internally,  i am not comfortable using chemicals for anything and always looking for natural remedies.  ground cloves work great for my dogs.  i will be using garlic,  pumpkin seeds and ground clove if it is safe.

Welcome to BYC! You might want to find some articles written by vets before you use garlic and/or cloves.

I give garlic to my chickens but small quantities and not often. chemical wormers are poison as well.

 

I did put a very small quantity of clove but mixed in their feed. I cannot know if it helped. I yesterday gave my chickens: garlic, cayenne pepper and black pepper mixed with nettle, oregano, basil, acv and some yogurt and found some dead worms in their poop. about a month ago I wormed them with levamisole and it didn't kill all worms. a few days later I chopped some pumpkin seeds and found some dead worms. I guess the best thing should be using chemicals and then a few days later pumpkin seeds, garlic, cayenne and black pepper.

 

if you give them garlic and onion from time to time it will not harm them. to much of it would.
