I just found worms in one of my hens poop. Is Wazine a good dewormer? I know my local TSC has it and it's not too expensive. Does it work good? How long do I have to throw the eggs out until it is safe to eat them again?

Wazine only kills roundworms, so if it's a different type of worm you'll want to go with a different wormer. The withdrawal period for Wazine is two weeks and then you can eat the eggs again.

In that case you may want to go with a more broad spectrum wormer such as valbazen or Safeguard.

I don't know what kind the worms are though. They are small like not even a fourth of an inch long.
Could be capillary worms, cecal worms or maybe even tape segments. If they're capillary or cecal worms I would use Safeguard at 0.5ml per 2.2 pounds orally for five days.
