    Help! I've dewormed my four chickens and now should I wait to eat their eggs? The package doesn't say anything about throwing the eggs away, but someone suggested they may taste weird and or be poisonous to us. They thought we should wait two weeks? Thank You! I'm new here from Boise Idaho.

    Depends on what type of worming meds you used.
    I think standard withdrawal time is around 14days for most wormers.

    I used Durvet Strike 111 poultry dewormer. I looked it up on the web and found there is no need to wait to harvest eggs. It's safe!

    Hello everyone out there..I am new here and have a few questions about deworming my chickens.so we started with 6 chickens raise them and are now about a yr old .between the past 2months my husband went out to a swip swap farmer's markets and have bought couple more total of 21 hens between the ages of 1-3 ..that's not counting out 20 baby chicks (2months old)long story short I decided to deworm all of them. I started on 4/7 I used wazine 17 for the water and strike lll/ type B medicated feed poultry dewormer .since then I been checking their poop every now and then and seen once some small white worms not much but that was it haven't seen then again but just to make sure I gave them another round of both dewormers this past Sunday 4/17..my question is should I use another kind or I am okay using those 2? And what should I use for tape worms? I have read That none of the 2 are for tape worms .I havnt seen any but since I am deworming then might as well treat for then too. I live in Florida so temp here is hot in the mid and high 80s . please any advice will help. thank you in Advance
