    I haven't wormed my chickens this year, but I suspect that they are needing it. For those very experienced in poultry, what do you find is the best medication for deworming. Thanks in advance!

    My personal preference is Valbazen, because it gets all types of worms. Also, if they happen to have a heavy worm load, some wormers can clog up their system with dead worms but Valbazen doesn't do this.

    I'd suggest reading some of dawg53's recent posts.
