    There are worms in my broody rhode island red's poop! Please help me get rid of them. I don't want to use Wazine, so is there anything else? They are 1/2 an inch to 1 1/2 inches long, and are less than 1/4 of a centimeter thick. The chicken poop itself is normal but there are a lot of white worms in it. She only poops once a day or less, but I've heard that's normal for a broody hen.

    I recommend that you purchase Valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer. Administer it orally. Dosage is 1/2 cc for standard size chickens and 1/4cc for smaller chickens. Redose again in 10 days. Valbazen kills all types of worms that chickens can get, tapeworms and flukes included that other wormers wont kill. You can purchase it from Jefferslivestock.com or call them. There's a 24 day withdrawal from start to finish.
