Can chickens who are being treated for worms go outside?

    I'm treating my flock of 8 for worms using wazine in their water. The poor things have been literally cooped up for the last week because of all the rain we've been having. Its finally sunny and the ground has dried out some. Do you guys think it would be ok to put them out in their tractor? (our run is still under construction)

    Edited to add: whoops. Sorry. Posted in wrong forum by mistake.

    Sure let'm out. Remember that after 10 days they need to be wormed again. I just did my second worming today. For the second worming I used pour on Ivermectin. about 8 drops for standard size chicken. You'ld think I was killing them for all the fuss they put up.
