Garlic won't work either and it could be toxic.

I sincerely apologize for being misinformed and misinforming the difference between apple cider vinegar preventing and being used as a dewormer. It certainly would benefit starting a few days

Thank you all so much for your replies!

 

Does anyone know what the best de-wormer is for chickens? Effect on egg quality or viability is not important. Just want the best safest dewormer for her.

 

Thanks again, Greatly appreciated <3

If she were mine I would treat for capillary worms by giving her Safeguard liquid or paste orally at 0.23ml per pound for five consecutive days.

Safeguard is what I use most.

And the amount is not a typo... Poultry, dogs and cats get 10x the amount that goats, sheep, cattle and horses get, and it's given to them several days in a row, not just once.
