There is one wormer that will kill them ALL....valbazen. Dosage is 1/2cc for standard size and 1/4cc for smaller chickens. Redose again in 10 days to kill larva hatched from eggs since the initial dosing.

Dawg, I don't believe that is true. If you consider cocci a parasite, then Valbazen is not the drug of choice. I don't see that Valbazen covers gapeworm either. There are just too many internal parasites for one wormer to do a complete job.
Here is what I read about Valbazen; 'kills adult liver flukes, stomach and intestinal worms, tapeworm and lung worm in cattle and sheep'. I would not mind using it if it was the drug of choice for the type of parasites my chickens had.
I would not count on Valbazen or any wormer to kill ALL parasites that my chickens might have. Therefore, I find out what the chickens have and make sure that the medicine I give them will work. And that just costs $13-20 bucks to find out.
