I boil several walnut hulls (the green part) in water. I believe it was six hulls to one liter. I'd have to look it up, lol. I just dose the dogs/cats (kittens too) with 1 tbs or so of the liquid a couple times a day, every day for about ten days. I repeated the dose like you do with other wormers. I also keep a bucket of the walnut wormer in the yard where the animals can drink from it at will. They will drink it as they see fit. That stuff tastes nasty so they must know it is medicine.

The chickens get a bucket of the wormer and they drink from it, a as they see fit. I also wormed them several times over ten days, or so with, I'd say about 1 tbs per bird of the wormer.

I made them eat really hot peppers (black pearl) by withholding food until they cleared their feeders. They like the peppers but weren't thrilled with them, lol.

You can also just steep the hulls in a bucket of water for a week or so. I have never seen anyone overdose on walnut liquid. It is possible I guess.

We have several mature walnut trees so I can do this for free. It might get expensive doing it with purchased walnut powders.

WEAR GLOVES! This stuff stains, BADLY! lol

One of the main problems people have with parasites is forgetting to treat their yards/pens when they treat their animals. You will never be 100% free of parasites but they can be handled and kept under control, naturally.

Cayenne Pepper;

It`s a natural wormer. Mix it heavily with your feed to turn it rusty. Pepper in the front, worms run out the back. Chickens don`t have the heat receptors like most critters, so they eat it up. Worms, on the other hand, heh, heh. You can still eat the eggs. Repeat in 10 days to get the new worms........Pop

We had to cull a 3 year old White Leghorn hen from our flock.  According to the veterinarian she was full of worms...too full to treat.  We had never wormed them before and never had this problem.  My husband bought the Myazine-17, but I read "not for laying hens for human consumption."  I told him that it needed to go back.  Then I read about the ACV and garlic with DE.  These, as I understand, are preventative.  So, the thought of cayenne pepper to rid them of the worms is ideal.  I want something that will get rid of the worms, then we will start them on a routine for preventative.

Look up using dish soap, and especially Shaklee's Basic H in the water for worm control.  It is the method I plan on using.  Completely safe to eat the eggs and meat, the worms cannot build up a tolerance to it since it.  I plan on using it in the water 2 times a year, May and Nov, both times here are not especially cold or hot so if the water tastes odd and they are sluggish to start drinking it they won't be harmed, and I plan on keeping it in their water for 1 month.

personally, i would't risk cayenne pepper for worms, because some worms you won't see evidence of until it is a full blown infestation-if at all. A friend had a hen autopsied, assuming mereks due to the symptoms- no external sign of worms, her crop was packed with worms, so i won't fool around with possible wormers. i use either safeguard, zemectrin gold, but the best is the valbazen(on order now)
