    Deworming Chickens


    After reading a thread on deworming, I decided I needing something to use as a resource where all the information was in one concise location.
    First and foremost: I AM NOT A VETERINARIAN!!! I take no responsibility for the results of using the information listed here. All of this was gathered from one thread and just put into a chart for easy reference. You should ALWAYS contact your veterinarian before starting any treatment.
    The thread I am referencing can be found here:
