    I just did my first hatch of eggs and got 12 out of 12 Barnevelders. Do these chicks need to be wormed? I buy chicks from My Pet Chicken sometimes and they always say that they are wormed.

    Do I need to? How is it done?

    Right now the Barne's are in the brooder with 7 Golden Campines and 1 Dominique that were delivered 2 days before my hatch.

    I didnt think you were suppose to give young chicks any medications except the medicated feed. Kinda like a puppy, you have to wait til they are a certain age before you can worm them.
