i have young chickens that free range, they are just starting to lay. a few i got from a poultry auction, and a few from a breeder. i know most people worm thier chickens a few times a year, i have not done this. if a chicken has worms how do you know, and is it ok to eat the eggs? should i worm them all first before i eat thier eggs incase they do have worms? growing up i never remember worrying about this, and we free ranged our chickens and ate thier eggs. any advice?
