    Not sure if this is the right place for this post. I am wondering what different wormers there are and the safety in using them, how they are administered and such, and what do you use to get rid of mites and lice? I like options lol. I do not that I know of have any of these problems yet, but the more I read I realize it is probably evident at some point so I would like to be prepared. Thanks to any one and everyone's posts in advance. I am pretty good at researching so if it is too much trouble just the names/brands would be greatly appreciated (from chicken knowledgeable people) [​IMG]

    There is a very nice gentleman on here named Dawg, he knows alot about wormers and I think he uses eprinex cattle pour on wormer, you can also use Ivermect/pour on, form what I understand you part the feathers at the base of the neck and make sure the meds go directly on the skin 1/2 a cc for large chickens and 1/4 cc for bantams. If you use the ivermect you must toss the eggs for two weeks ;o) HOpefully Dawg will come around and be more specific about your other options..Good luck

    Thank you, that was something I didn't even think about (tossing the eggs) I hope he finds this post. I love the information.
