    Hi All,

    I am in the process of worming my flock and got these good pictures of roundworm that I thought I'd share. I'm using Wazine at a dose of 2 Tablespoons per gallon and this is what one of the chickens expelled. I decided to worm them because 2 were having chronic diarrhea for the past several days. No other symptoms or signs of illness, just runny poo so I figured it was worms. The last time I wormed them was in late August/early September and at that time, I used Z-Gold because I suspected tapeworm. The next time I worm, I'll rotate to another broad spectrum (tape, cecal, etc.) wormer to avoid worm resistance to the meds.

    Anyway, just sharing, in case these pics help others.

    Guppy

    Cool. And very good idea on the wormer rotation.
