post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Please can someone tell me what kinda worms these are and how to get rid of them??! They made my hen severely sick!! I don't want to lose her! sad.png she is very lethargic, doesn't want to move, seems very out of it, keeps her eyes closed, not eating or drinking, had a few siezure like symptoms yesterday, and is very fluffed up! Her poo was very yellow and watery and had lots of clear mucos. I made her drink some water with Apple cider vinigar (with mother) in it and a few hours later she pood and there were tons of wiggly worms!!!!! It smelt real bad too!! sad.png( idk if the vinigar helped them come out, or if they just finally made their way into her intestine! Please help me!! I love her so much!

Those are large roundworms. It appears that your hen is infested with them and most likely your other birds will have worms as well. If you've never wormed your birds before, I recommend that you use Valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer as a first time wormer. Valbazen slowly kills all types of worms that chickens can get over several days and prevents internal blockage which could cause toxic dead worm overload and possibly kill a chicken.

Administer the valbazen using a syringe without a needle. Dosage is 1/2cc given orally undiluted for standard size birds, 1/4cc for smaller birds. Redose all your birds again in 10 days with valbazen. If your feed store doesnt carry valbazen, you can order it from one of the links below:

If she's not drinking and eating you need to tube feed her. Seizures can be from dehydration or starvation. Get the tube, syringe, Pedialyte or Gatorade and I can teach you.

She should be brought inside and kept in a warm cage or room (80-85 degrees). Read this:

She needs 15ml fluids per pound now, then again in 60-90 minutes and then a couple more times in the next 12 hours. Once hydrated, you can tube baby bird food.

Would this be safe to give to 8 week old chicks? If so, at what dose? One of the reviews at Jeffers says 0.1cc:1lb, but that's for puppies.

Yes, give 1/4cc orally undiluted to each chick. Be careful not to cause aspiration.

I went to the Jeffers website and they also have a safe and natural treatment called WormGuard Plus. Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Or is the Valbazen the best bet?

As ill as your chicken is, I would seriously follow Dawg53's advice.  The natural products are not going to get rid of those worms.
