    I called around and was surprised by how many vet, including livestock vets, would not to a fecal test for poultry. I found a vet who would and it's $30. Just wondering if this is too high or if there are better options. I'd rather not worm them if I don't have to.

    My vet does it for $10, doesn't treat chickens but will do a float test for one. See what vet will sell you flee meds without having to see the dog and those are usually the ones that do it cheaper. Some vets are in it for the money and want you to bring everything in for every little reason so they can charge you more. Other vets are in it to help animals and charge lower fees and only require to see the animal for something important. You can also call your local state vet office and see what they have to say.
