    I am worming for the first time, I have a couple questions.
    I heard you can use 1 cup of apple cider vinegar for 1 gallon. Will this work?
    I only have six chickens, should I use a store-bought wormer?
    How often do I worm?
    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Almost every day, without fail, there is a discussion on this subject. Here`s a link to the latest one that I have participated in. My preferrence is the cayenne pepper, which eliminates the most common worms (roundworms) and you can still eat the eggs, but as you read through this thread, you may decide on another method. If you do a search on worms, you will get hundreds of ideas. Good luck....Pop
