I have about 20 chickens of varying ages. Today I found a round worm in their poop. I wormed them last oct with albendazole. My dog gets tested every year and came back good (he eats chicken poo) so I didn't worm them this spring. Can I give them the same thing I did last year or will it overwhelm them? Should I gwt something else less potent to give first?
 
Valbazen or albendazole is fine to use again this year. Many people use it twice a year, since it gently kills the worms over several days. Give 1/2 ml to each chick by mouth and then repeat it in 10 days. Toss out eggs for total of 24 days.
