but can you all give me some good guidelines about deworming? One of my barred rock hens looks kind of droopy. She has been looking rough this past week...broken feathers (from the boys), crop isn't full. I am isloating her to see what her poo looks like since I haven't witnessed her poos lately. She seems to be eating-I saw her eat today-she just doesn't have a lot in her crop. I have inspected her and she doesn't seem to have anything out of the ordinary going on. She has lost some weight recently...looking really scrawny. She still runs around although I do see her fluffed up more often than the others. So, I am thinking worms of some kind. I have read some posts about deworming. What do you all recommend as a dewormer? Should I be giving her special things after to help keep her strength up (such as dairy, higher protein)? Oh, I have been giving the flock some oatmeal mixed with their layer scratch to help with any protein issues. That is the other thing I was thinking might be wrong with Fleur...low protein. Suggestions? Thanks a bunch!
