    Hi I made an account here to ask all you wonderful, smart people a question: what is the best roundworm dewormer for chickens? I used wazine, but want to use something stronger for my girls! I'm thinking about ivermectin, but wanted to get a second opinion... Answers and links to meds wil be appreciated! I love my hens so much and hate to see them have this! I literally cried when I saw the worms!

    Just a another little question, can people can roundworms from chickens? I've been pretty smart about this whole ordeal such as washing my hands after handling them and wearing closed shoes...
