    Howdy folks! Got some icky things! Really icky! I was sitting on a brick chatting with the girls this evening and here was a worm about three inches long, kinda white .... and a hen ate it. Then I turned around and saw a poo plop with the same looking worm in it! It was dead but still .... eeeewwwww! It looks like a roundworm (I googled). Right ater I saw the the womr in the poo plop I ran and grabbed the DE and sprinkled it on the roost and in the nest boxes .... now I have very angry hens ... and one ticked rooster! They hate me to mess with their house! Picky biddies! lol

    So what next? Do I buy wormer? Should I toss the eggs I got this evening out? I showered as soon as I came in and tossed my clothes in the washer! Hate worms ..... eeeewwwwwiiieee!!!! Any help greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    DE wont get rid of the worms. You need to buy a wormer. Wazine wormer is good and there are others. Good luck its not the end of the world. Its an easy fix!
