    Do I need to clean up droppings with worms after deworming?

    Ah ok, that clears things up. So, just to clarify, as long as I worm them say 2 times a year, they will have roundworms but they won't be to the point they are now where its actually effecting their health and laying? Also, if the roundworm cycle is unavoidable, why do you bother cleaning up the...

    Do I need to clean up droppings with worms after deworming?

    Based on what i've read and what you've said, it sounds impossible to break the roundworm cycle since it stays in the soil, even if poop was picked up everyday there's still a great chance they came in contact with it. So it sounds like they will always have roundworms as I can't stop them from...

    Do I need to clean up droppings with worms after deworming?

    You mentioned picking up feces in your pens several times a day, but if the Excreted worms are harmless, why is this necessary? If I were to cover up the soil with a layer of woodchips (which I planned on doing anyways) would this help end the cycle since they won't have access to the soil? I...

    Do I need to clean up droppings with worms after deworming?

    Hello, This may be a stupid question, but I just want to make sure. I dewormed my flock 2 days ago with Safe Guard and today I noticed some of their droppings had roundworms in it (dead? I think, I hope?), Do I need to pick up and discard all the droppings with worms or is it fine to just leave...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Here is the picture of the bird: Unfortunately I just cleaned out the dropping board and there hasn't been any bloody poop i've found (sometimes they won't poop blood for a few days then start again). What I can say is that the majority of bloody poops are not like the picture I put in the...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Hi, thought I'd give you an update on the situation. I finished treating with Corid a few weeks ago and gave some direct doses to the sickest ones as suggested. The Corid unfortanately had no impact, I am still getting bloody poop and the birds are still acting sick, so I'm pretty sure its not...

    Sick young hen, not sure what's wrong

    Hello, I have a black austrolorp, a year old, that has suddenly become sick within the last 3 days. My chickens have been pooping blood recently (not sure if it's all of them or just a few) and some have been acting sick, but not to the extent of the austrolorp. I have treated them with Corid...

    How long to use Safe Guard goat dewormer for unknown kind of worms

    Hello, I purchased some safe guard goat dewormer to worm my chickens. It is too expensive to get a fecal test to find out which kind they had or even if they have any, so I wanted to use a pretty general dewormer. My hens have been sick recently and pooping blood, I treated for coccidiosis but...

    Treated chickens with Corid for 7 days and still getting bloody poop

    I have a lot of vets near me and I've called all of them and only one was willing to test the chicken poop and it would be $50 to do, a fecal test by all means would be great for knowing what they have but I would rather avoid the cost, is there anything for worms that is basically an all in one...

    Treated chickens with Corid for 7 days and still getting bloody poop

    Hello, I've never had any bloody poop until last week when I introduced 2 new birds to the flock. Within 2 days I started noticing the bloody poop and one of the new ones was acting especially sick. I started treating them when I noticed as I already had Corid on hand from treating the flock a...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    The coop is quite clean as the dropping board catches the majority of the poop which I will clean out but I think a full coop cleaning is unnecessary. Unfortunately it has been raining non-stop here for the past few days so the run is a muddy mess. I put her back with the flock after her toe...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Luckily there is only one bird that appears extremely sick and I just gave her .6ml directly. And the cherry on top is I realized there was blood all over the coop and what do you know, she also ripped her toe nail off. I tried stopping the bleeding with some stuff we have for when we cut our...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    What was the stronger Corid dilution you gave her? I started treating them 2 days ago but they're only getting worse. I've now noticed more bloody poops so I'm guessing even more birds are having these bloody poops. They act somewhat alright except one, she was ok yesterday but this morning...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Yeah, we have a crazy amount of vets near here. I was very surprised at the cost of a fecal too, and even more surprised most of the vets refused to do one. The egg withdraw time was definitely a huge smack in the face, and the prices for different treatments that might not even be for the worms...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Thanks so much for the information! I looked closer at their poop and noticed this, do you know what these white flecks are?

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    As I mentioned above, I don't think I can justify paying $50 for a fecal test, although I'd really love to so I can treat exactly what they have. I thought once you treated them, they were all good and didn't have to do it again? Sort of like a vaccine.

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Well, that really sucks. I really regret getting these 2 new birds. I quarantined them but didn't notice anything wrong, and now they'll give the rest of my flock worms as well :(. I have called around before to do a fecal sample but it was just too expensive, I wasn't willing to pay $50. Their...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    The 2 youngest ones I got are a little over 3 months, the other 2 are months old. I'll definitely treat with corid just in case. When you say direct dose, do you mean to put it on them or directly into their beak? Is theirtherean option for using the safeguard in water? I checked for lice/mites...

    Blood in chicken coop, what is it?

    Is it ok to treat a flock or certain birds with corid twice? I already treated my flock a few months ago, so I don't know if it would be bad to treat them another time. I've looked into worming before but there's just so much contradicting information, do you have any suggestions on which...
