worming troubles!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I decided to worm my chickens this year just to stay on the safe side. I wormed them last year with wazine and valbazen and they did fine. This year I wormed them about a month ago. i completely forgot about the wazine and a read an article about how if you just use valbazen alone it can overload your chickens with the dead worms, block up their system and possibly kill them. My chickens seem to be fine but im not 100% sure. I found red worms in their poop today so im thinking they still have some dead worms in their system. Should i just let them pass them theirselves or give them something to help flush out their system?? And if i should give them something, what should i give them?? 


Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks:P

They'll come out on their own. Looks like you treated them effectively!

There may be some old posts on BYC about first worming with Wazine (piperazine) before using Valbazen, but that is not necessary. Valbazen is very safe, but it needs to be used once, then again in 10 days or so to get the worm eggs.
