Now I feel I have been #1 mislead about the DE and #2 been very lucky that my girls haven't had worms. Off to research worming now.
Thank you for the info.
Don’t feel bad, I think all of us were mislead.
Chickens can get many worms and these worms can affect the esophagus, crop, proventriculas, intestines and I think they can get flukes in their repro tract. Two worms are big enough to see if they happen to poop them out, roundworms and ceca worms. One might be able to see cecal worms, but they are quite small.
