My questions are, is there a particular order to which I should be trying to eliminate the parasites? Will this new hen ever be considered "clean" to be added into my existing flock? Should I treat the whole flock in case of any minute chance of cross contamination from a fly or something? I'm one of those people that wants to give this hen every fighting chance I can, but I also want to protect my flock. With all the care I'm providing, she's turning into a sweet girl. She's also getting lots of goodies, scrambled egg, grass, grapes, meal worms, etc to make sure she is eating.
When I acquired her, she just finished molting. I've had her for about 3 weeks, and she just started laying for me. While I'm not eating the eggs, I'll probably blow them out to keep them as decorations. Her poops are relatively normal. A bit on the dry side at times, however she is drinking water, and the poop is always covered with tapeworm eggs. 😔
I've read up on a ton of info here, just thought I would ask and see what others think about the situation.
