Apple cider vinegar is a not a dewormer. It does have some other health benefits, but won't deworm a bird.

You're better off getting a dewormer like Valbazen or Safeguard for goats. These two dewormers can usually be found at a local feed store, or can be purchased online.

Do chickens need to be given a dewormer on a regular basis?

If your soil is warm and moist most of the year (I suppose it is where you live...like ours,) it would be best to worm several times a year. I worm my birds every 3 months, sometimes sooner depending how much rain we get, and it's been alot this year and I have wormed about every 2 months.

Some people worm on a strict schedule. Personally try to worm every 6-8 months. But, my chickens can't free range (neighbor dogs freerange) so I don't have to worry about whether it rains a lot.

People that free range in normally humid, wet areas tend to worm a little more regularly.

I use Valbazen or Safeguard.

Can you get Flubenvet in the US? Just had to worm my girls and couldn't locate a US source. We used Zimecterin Gold - needed to treat tapeworm and gapeworm. Hope it does the trick.
