Is it necessary to worm your chickens when it starts getting cold out? Mine are constantly scratching about in the goat & horse pens amongst other free range areas. They don't act sick or anything but should I do it an a precautionary?

How would I know if they needed worming?

How many days withdrawl from eating eggs?
Thanks!

I would do it, even if it was just to give them pumpkin seeds or some other "natural" wormer.

I don't know if it is neccasary, but here are some ideas for worming:

diatomaceous earth, mix it into their food,

(OK that was only one idea
sue me
)

I like the idea of pumpkin seed-I have a ton of squash and pumpkins and they get the seeds all the time. Does it really work?
