I did see that episode and I believe he was referring to lime which is a product of limestone. You wouldn't want to put down lye. And yes, it is a good idea to deworm your birds. Valbazen and liquid Safeguard for goats are very good products to use on chickens.

There is a withdrawal period for most, but not all, meds used as dewormers. The drawback with Wazine is that all it gets rid of is roundworms and hickens can get a lot more then that. So it's pretty ineffective as a wormer. You can use the Wazine for the initial treatment and then follow up in 10 days with something more effective like the Safeguard or Valbazen. You will need to discard eggs for 10 days after the last treatment.
