    my older hen is doing better since I de-wormed all the chickens,
    she is now pooping better, and is getting feisty again and she seems to feel lot better,
    so I guess the worming helped, still don't see worms in her poop at all,
    with dogs you usually see them in the feces,
    so I will de-worm them twice a year,
    thanks for all the advice,
    I have had chickens for three years and I'm still learning more about them.
     
  2. Yeah.. I never see worms in my horses' droppings or my birds or cat or dogs, but they all get dewormed anyway [​IMG] Glad she's perking up for you!

    just checking back in hens are doing great since the de-worming,
    now we can eat their eggs again, they have slowed down still pretty warm at night here in washington,
    getting lots of rain,
    will start getting colder here in another week or so then snow will hit.
     
  4. Great news. Thanks for updating us.

    yep finally put just a red light in for the morning cause it is dark until 7, now that the time change is off of daylight savings time but now it is dark at 5
    will put heat lamp in when it gets colder like down in the low 30 and under,
    just for the early morning 5-7
    take care
