Okay, I had chickens before. With Goats. Never thought a thing about it. I would worm my goats normal and never worried. BUT I got pigs a week or so ago. They are like 3 months old. I decided to worm them with Wyzine (?). Today I got about 4 dozen foot long round worms out of the pen. Now, I cant find much info on pigs (like how do you worm them with water added wormer when you water them with a nipple like they tell you to?? I just put it in the feed... hope I didnt kill them. LOL ) back to no info on pigs. From what I can find, they are pretty much gona have worms. I just try to keep the worms from getting too bad. So about once a month or so I worm them. No big deal. I am hoping that by getting all the round worms out of the pen, the infestation wont be as bad. BUT next month, when I put my chicks outside, they will more than likely get to the poo and worms BEFORE I do. (chickens just eat poo. for me it was always a benefit.. LOL ) So, If they ingest these tapeworms, does that mean I shouldnt kill them for food when they need culling? or I should watch my calender and not do it for a few weeks after? Should I throw out eggs in the week or so after I worm the hogs? What about when I worm the dogs? Granted, I am not an expert on pigs, chickens, or even kids. BUT, I know most of the basics. LOL Maybe once I worm for few months strait (before my chickens start to lay) I might never see another round worm. It would be nice, but unlikely. LOL Anyway, once the wormer is ingested by a pig, kills a worm, is expelled, does the chicken, who is getting dead worm and wormer second hand, have enough wormer in them to matter?
