I can't imagine shoving capsules down their throats! 

 

When I wanted to selectively treat for worms, I used Safeguard paste on scraps of bread.  The hardest part was keeping another chicken from swiping it.  It's cheap and readily available OTC.

Goddess, I was able to buy piperazine solution from my local pet shop in NSW. I was advised to add it to the water every 3-4 months [dose according to number of birds].

Piperzine is not a complete wormer and is only effective against round worms. Williams and Wormal are both complete and will take care of all major types of worms that threaten your flock to my understanding. With a little practice on ones method, administration of tablets is actually quite easy and goes fairly smoothly with little to no stress on even the most spirited of birds.

Now that we have a BUNCH of chickens the pills are not viable. We give them Apple Cider vinegar with "mother". Put a table spoon (or two) in with each gallon of water daily. Feed them RAW pumpkin seeds and some yogurt every few weeks. You can also put food grade Diatomaceous Earth in with their feed.

Hey there - I was advised at the farm store where I buy all my chicken stuff to put apple cider vinegar in their water.  Do you do that all of the time as preventative measure or just occasionally?  Cheers!
