    ok this is how it is..my dog gets worms and we worm her and then she poops the worms out. the chickens then eat her poop and then she eats the chicken poop. how do you tell if you chickens have worms?

    That sounds like a terrible cycle! I would try to not lewt the hens eat the dog poo, especially if the dog was wormed...and there are meds in the feces...just doesnt sound good to me. I dunno [​IMG]

    Quote:We just put 2 - 4 cloves of crushed garlic per bird with some cottage cheese or plain yogurt on top of their feed.
