My three girls are 7 months old now, laying like crazy, but today I noticed worms in a cecal dropping! They were very much alive. :sick What's the best wormer for what I assume are roundworms? I never had worm issues with my other chickens.

Thanks,

The most common worm that can be seen is the large round worm. Many people use Valbazen or SafeGuard to treat worms in their chickens, especially since they get most other worms. Let us know if you need dosages. I would not waste money on Wazine that only gets round worm, but a fecal test by your local vet can test for certain worms. I would get several fresh samples and take them in.
