    Indestructible Tapeworms?

    I'm new here and I am about to tell you a story of indestructible tapeworms and a fairly new mother hen at the end of her rope. And ask a question or two. And yes...its probably going to be unnecessarily long. A few months ago, I found tapeworms (verified) in my chickens poop for the first...


    Can they all live in harmony, 2 silkies are 26 weeks, and 2 silkies and the frizzle are 16 weeks, they all seem to be doing fine, i let them mingle with the 17 hens i have for a bit every day supervised.....or do i see rehoming them anytime soon?


    ALTHOUGH the feathers and feet look the same, the faces are definately different, they are now 20 weeks old.....they were in the bantan bin at TSC, i am also assuming they are hens, no eggs yet, but no crowing either
