    I just read that runners are prone to parasites. What and how do you give them. How long to not use eggs.

    Haven't had any parasites that I know of in five years.

    And we do get fecal tests done in the spring - hmmm, we are about due….

    I like to find out so that if we need to medicate, we don't do it when we are getting 8 eggs a day.
