    I have 1 duck and 3 chickens.
    We have had them for about 6 months now since they were a few weeks old.
    They are all extremely healthy, active and won't stop laying [​IMG]

    Do I need to give them any medication every now and again?

    I read that some strong chillies can be used to deworm them.
    WHat about other illnesses or parasites?

    I eat their eggs both cooked and raw (in drinks)...is their anything I should be worried about...?
