Those are both topics worthy of good research!  ;)

For your chickens to get the full benefits of it you would do it as their regular diet. Type fermenting feed in the main BYC search box. Or, ask questions here since it would be the right thread. But really, there's plenty to read on here that you probably wouldn't need to ask any more questions. 😊

Using DE all year will help the chickens.

 

my math is not exact but then with DE you can't over feed it.

so I used it that way then it is good to go.


2-5% DE to amt of feed daily.

 

DE is used as executing the adult worms in the gut by going thru the gut daily and the diadems knick the soft skinned worms and dehydrate them and the chickens body will use the dead worms as proteins.

 

and NO the DE does not need to be done and eggs thrown away and does not decrease egg production.
in turn the DE is a mineral and calcium item the gut extracts from the DE,

 

and as for the first chemical worming with what ever kind you use.

really do as if you see worms,

then do the 1 worming today with  wormer of choice.

await 14 days and,

do the Ivermectin or some other chemical wormer.
 

this is one of the wormings for this yr.
then in late fall do this two step worming again.

 

only needs done twice a yr by chemical wormer as they go to the blood stream and kill the worm larvae.
then the DE goes and kills the adult worms that get by.

 

as for using cayenne wormer as herbal wormer.

the herbal wormer listed is about 90% cayenne pepper and sold from England.

 

if a person would have wormed in late summer early fall the birds would have been molting, and egg production would have been off any ways.


so it is ideal time to worm.

Besure and do the wet mash probiotics on the days after worming till nexr worming and then do it again after worming.

 

so the chickens body builds up good gut flora and excellent eggs.

you could boil the eggs for the dogs and the wormer would go into their system also


do not feed them back to the chickens as that only adds the wormer back into their bodies
