    Don`t worry about it, Jessa. If you start seeing worms in their droppings, or they get listless or pale, then it`s time to worm........Pop

    I'm reading this thread because I too got grossed out by the other thread. Question: how do you know if your hen is pale? Seriously. Not trying to be funny. What part gets pale?
