    I have 2, 5 wk old bantams (one Cochin and one Brahma). I am worming the rest of the chickens tomorrow, but how old should they be before I start with the little ones. And also what dosage?

    I don't worm mine until they are 6 months old and they are close to adult size. I don't know if babies would need wormed that soon. Maybe someone on here does and can help you out.

    I worm my birds twice a year with Ivomex. Plus Ivomex is good to keep mites & lice off your birds.
    Here is the website with instructions & some information.
