    This morning I noticed one of my kittens has round worm. I know that it is easily transferrable and chickens eat poop... Do I need to worry about my chickens? I have not noticed any worms in their poop, but there isn't any vet in my area that I would be able to check with...

    I think one treats roundworms in cats and kittens with Pyrantel Pamoate... I treat roundworms in poultry with fenbendazole 10% (Safeguard or Panacur, liquid or paste).
