Sick chicken and deworming

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by freedom chick, Feb 13, 2016.

  1. I posted a recent threat about my sick chicken.

    Question now.
    Will deworming a weak chicken who is not eating much do her in?

    Thanks.

    Need answers asap

    It's best to get her drinking well, but if you believe that worms are responsible for her worsening condition, I would go ahead and worm her with Valbazen 1/2 ml orally, or SafeGuard Liq. Goat Wormer 1/4 ml per pound for 5 straight days. That gets most of the really hard to treat worms.
