How can I prevent a re-infestation of roundworms?

    Aside from rotating my runs and worming regularly, is there anything I can apply to the soil to prevent worms from re-infesting my chickens? It seems as though there's more now than in recent years. I've heard some breeders suggest agricultural lime but I'm not sure if that is recommended or not. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
