    Hi, welcome to BYC from here in Washington State USA! I'm sorry to here about your chickens, I have never dealt with Gape Worm before. It could be from where you get the chickens from, you could be getting them already infected. Or it could be something there eating or drinking that's infecting them...but I really don't know.
    To introduce yourself to everyone, go up to forum than find new member introductions.
    Again, welcome to the sight and sorry about your chickens.

    [​IMG] I use a dewormer (moxidectin) for gape worm infestation. I'm not sure what is available in your country, but it sounds like you were treating your birds for respiratory infection.
