Hi- new to byc & a little lost,yet. I only have 1 chicken: a feral stray who came to stay in Aug/07, when the drought hit. She's just started to lay (3 eggs so far). I worry because she gets a short bout of diarrhea each time she lays. Is this usual?? Could it be parasites? I have heard you can use cayenne seed for worms, but *how much* for *how long?* Any/all help is appreciated. I hadn't even seen a live chicken since I was 8 ys/o before Chook came along and good info & chicken supplies are hard to come by in the city. The closest feed store I've found is 40+ miles away! Thanks, All!
