    I took my rooster to the vet and found out he had roundworms so I am treating our flock of 36 birds. How can I prevent them from getting these again? Can I buy something to spray that will kill the worms? My chickens are 3 months old. I have no idea how they got worms. Thanks so much for any info. [​IMG]

    Forget it...roundworms are everywhere in the soil...as are many other type of worms, that's just the way it is. They prefer warm moist, damp soil and humidity to thrive. I recommend you read 'threehorses' messages on worming. I follow her instructions to the letter.
