    Valbazen kills all chicken worms including tapeworm. First State Vet Supply has it for $26.

    Thanks for the info. I went down to kook at her this morning and she had passed away.... It was really odd. She was fine on Friday.. Sat morning didn't want to free range but just thought that she wanted to stay behind to lay an egg... Sat afternoon I knew something was definitely wrong and now she's dead. She had no symptoms before then. Im wondering if she had an egg break in her... And not worms.
