Hi everyone, I've spent a few hours searching through older threads, hoping to find the answer to this, but haven't yet, so I'm hoping someone can come to my rescue.
My chickens have round worms. I know this for sure as I found some of the worms in poop as I was cleaning the coup.
I have seen non-specific deworming treatments suggested (or perhaps I should say "broad spectrum"), but I am hoping to avoid what appears will be throwing away a few weeks worth of eggs - is this possible? Or do all dewormers required discarding eggs after treatment?
If throwing eggs out is what I have to do, then that's what I will have to do, I was just wondering if there was a round worm treatment that doesn't require it.
Also, I would appreciate if someone could tell me the most effective round worm treatment, what the dose would be, and how it should be administered. Also, are these readily available from most feed stores in CA, and are they labeled for chickens or for other animals (in other words, are the medications the same for different species, just given in differing doses)?
Thanks so much - the knowledge on this board is awesome!
