Worm question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Are there any worms that pass between species? More specifically, from horses to chickens? I have horses and the girls are constantly rooting around in the paddocks, stalls, and manure pile and I was just curious to see if there are worms or other parasites that can be transferred from horse to chicken. Strongyloides are really the only worms I've found that can affect both species but I don't know if they hop from one to another

Most worms are species specific, I don't think you have anything to worry about, your horses and chickens are fine together.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

That's what I thought, but I wasn't entirely sure and the question came up the other day. I don't like not having an answer! Haha
