    i ran a fecal at work today on my adult chickens. i am assuming my six week old may have some worms also.

    i found an egg that looked like a dog hookworm, and i def found some sort of round worm.

    i dont know what they are called in chickens.. our clinic only works on dogs and cats.

    does anyone know of a website that sells good quality chicken wormer? and can i deworm my six week olds?

    thanks for anyones help with any parasite info

    I know that cattle Ivermec can be mixed with water and delivered via chicken drinking water, have you checked in Predators and Pests? I bet you'll find lots there...[​IMG]

    Contact a TSC they sell alot of different animal meds and might be able to help you. MM might have chicken dewormers so I would also check with them.

    tractor supply is my fav store. I go there at least twice a week. however, they dont have chicken dewormer.

    nobody around where i live has anything for chickens... except feed.

    the nearest chicken vet is 6 hours away from me...

    i was going to order wazine, but its only for rounds

    i found rounds in my chickens poop, but i also found a parasite egg that looks alot like hooks.. but i dont know what they are called in chickens.

    i am having trouble finding deworms for chickens that deworms more than just rounds

    thanks for yalls help

    When you worm chickens, can you still eat the eggs or do you have to wait for a period of time?

    I just wormed mine. It is 2cc of injectable Ivermectin in a gallon of water, for three days or .25 cc for bantam and .50 cc for standard in the mouth directly. Repeat either way in 2 weeks. No egg consumption for a week after worming. This works for me.

    Since I think one of my girls has gapeworm, I spent a lot of time doing research yesterday on worming chickens. Try this site - shilalal.homestead.com. Go to "Sitemap", scroll down to "Your Bird's Health" and click on "Worming Your Birds". Ivermectin is a very potent wormer and is also effective against external parasites. Read all the warnings and decide what is best for your chickies. I found Ivomec Eprinex at TS. If you decide to use this wormer, don't forget to buy a TB syringe for application - you won't need a needle.
