Honestly I don't know. I think one of the hens may be an australorp. I received them through someone else and don't know how well they were taken care of. I'm trying to be as organic as possible. Built a coop, but want to have free range. I have skimmed through and read several posts here. I did buy DE to sprinkle on the chicken house floors. I believe a couple, if not all have scaly leg mites and I will start working on that immediately. I did wonder what would be best to use for worming, and how often. After reading some of the posts (like having tapeworms in the eggs) I want them taken care of quickly. Would you recommend worming now? I only want a few, and want them to be healthy.
