Found and had regular vet confirm GIANT round worm in diarrhea of one of the hens. No idea who. A couple have a slight cough. The rest are fine. Diarrhea here and there and finally saw the worm. Done lots of research and they are not laying yet so think I will use fenbendazole as a wormer, but, they will start laying soon and I want an organic or safer constant wormer....I can't stand the thought of it and have kids and dogs and do NOT want worms. There is SO much info out there that it is confusing. Does DE really work? How do you know that it is working? Have you tested the poop? Does vinegar in the water work? Pumpkin seeds? how do you know? who has proven ways of a more holistic approach to keeping the chickens wormed and safe as the kids play with them and we track poo out of the run and the dogs could possibly get into it. Most people must have these same issues so I am just trying to find a tried and true method of keeping the worms AWAY, safely for them, for us and for the eggs. Thanks so much!
