I have a great momma hen she has 4 day old babies. Needing to worm the flock. Should I keep her and the chicks separate. The chicks have a small bowl of water and can't reach the wormer water. But is it ok to worm mom while she has the chicks.

If you are using wormer that is mixed with water----you do not want other water around---no chick water, no free ranging----you want them to drink the wormer water only. I would separate, but that's your call.
