    I use levamisole,valbazen and febendazole .all three are very good broad spectrum wormers, As for a waiting period on eating eggs after, nobody really knows as they are off label for poultry, It's generally accepted to wait 2 weeks after deworming before eating the eggs

    I just add human food grade DE (Perma-Guard) to the feed for my chickens. There's nothing toxic about it, it just destroys parasites (internal, external, in your garden, around the house... it's very useful stuff). I read to add 1 lb of DE per 5 lbs of feed -- I probably could've cut that in half and still gotten good results.
