So I posted a couple months ago that my chickens had been exposed to a infected bird. Turns out it didn't matter as a couple weeks ago my husband didn't lock them up at night and in the morning all were dead. So we are starting over, we have some babies in the garage right now and more coming in March. When the time comes to move them to the coop(it's a open air permanent hoop coop(9x16) ) are the new chickens going to just get roundworm from being on the same ground? Am I over worrying? Do pretty much all chicken on the ground exposed to roundworm? I never gave worms much thought before as we had never seen any signs of them. When we swapped chickens with a friend and I saw the worms in the new chickens poop I was totally grossed/freaked out. My other chickens never had any signs of worms before they died. But I worry about it because of my kids. Like after the worm incident my 14 month old picked up a piece of chicken poop(from the front yard, I only turned my back for a SECOND) and put it in her mouth. We did the whole process of testing her poop and thankfully no signs of worms.
