    Hey y'all! I'm gonna go to the store to get a wormer for my chickens tommorow (I might have to go to more than 1 to find it). What kind of wormer should I buy? I've never bought a wormer before. I want to worm my chickens before it's to late! Thank you all .

    Safeguard is a good choice. The bottle will say it's for goats but it works very well for chickens too.

    If you've never wormed them before, it's not a bad idea to pick up some Wazine as well and worm them with that first. Wazine only kills roundworms, so worming with that first would kill off roundworms, and then you can use Safeguard to knock out whatever else they have. If you go straight to Safeguard first and they have a high worm load, they can actually have trouble dealing with a mass die off of all the worms at once.
