worms

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi , I have just recently noticed my chickens poo has worms in it. I have used  "inca" Piperzine solution to worm them for the last 24 hours. I am just wondering if while they have been wormed with this solution are the eggs still able to be eaten  ? Thankyou

I'd suggest checking the label or going to the website of the maker. If you get no joy, I'd suggest 7 day period before you begin eating them again just to be on the safe side.

In the US it's not approved for poultry except under vet advisement......

......a vet here recommended 17 days after last treatment. 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

What about diatomaceous earth will that kill worms and you can still eat the eggs

DE only kills things by mechanical means. DE are very small very sharp shells of plankton which died long long ago. It works on hard shelled insects that use a shell rather than a skeleton. It works by getting into the joints of the shell. Movement causes the shells to cut into the joint socket and cut it to pieces. It doesn't work on creatures that have a soft outside, or a soft inside if they swallow it. You can eat DE, so can the chooks and the worm, it won't kill any.

Ok so what do you recommend to give them and how often that is natural and that we can keep eating their eggs?
