    Unfortunately I only noticed the worms in my hens' droppings AFTER the latest baby chicks were born. Can I add the AVIVERM worming liquid to the chickens' water knowing that the baby chicks will drink it too? Obviously, I don't want them getting the worms. They're only 1 week old. I'm not sure if AVIVERM is safe for baby chicks, and can't find that information anywhere. Thank you for any advice.

    What kind of worms did you see in your hens' droppings? Most of them can't be seen with the naked eye, unless she had tapeworm or a really heavy load of roundworm.

    Chickens are not usually wormed at less than one year. .
