Florida hens need deworming

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey... I have 11 hens, in Florida, that I need to deworm. This my 1st flock. I really didn't think about it until I got a puppy and she eats their poo. GROSSS, RIGHT!?! I've dewormed my puppy already.
What do I need to get for the chickens? Do I need to discard their eggs after deworming? If so, for how long? HELP, PLEASE....

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! De worming will be good for your birds and the dog too sickbyc.gif
Have a read of this article ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/internal-parasites-parasitic-worms-in-chickens

Ther are several things you can use to deworm so I'm sure the article will help.

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

THANK YOU,[URL]http://Yorkshire Coop[/URL]
I don't know what it more mortifying, the fact that my puppy eats chicken crap or the array of worm that chickens can get.
Thanks for the link. It was an eye opening experience...ūüė®

Don't get upset  - dogs eat chicken poo, and chickens will go after dog poo, horse poo,  and poo poo as well.  :sick  Once I saw my dog had brown teeth and stunk to high heaven,  he was eating his own  po.    I thought his teeth were rotting out.   :barnie  I guess that is  why they are animals and we are elevated to human status.:idunno

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
