    I can’t remember where I found this, but I thought it would make a good read.

    BLACK WALNUT– The dried and ground green hull of the Black Walnut contains tannin which is an organic iodine as well as juglandin, juglone and juglandic acids. It has been used for centuries to expel various types of worms including parasites that cause skin irritations – such as ringworm. It oxygenates the blood, which also helps to kill parasites. Black Walnut is very effective against tapeworms, pinworms, candida albicans (yeast infections) and malaria. It is also effective in reducing sugar levels, and helping the body rid itself of toxins.

    WORMWOOD–The MOST POWERFUL of the parasite killing herb kingdom. It is most effective against roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and pinworms. Wormwood contains the toxins thujone and isothujone which are the components that kill parasites. Wormwood also contains santonin which is known as a remedy for parasitic diseases. It is the second most bitter herb known to man and has been proven as a POWERFUL remedy for malaria. Wormwood also contains sesquiterpene lactones, which work similar to peroxide by weakening the parasites membranes therefore killing them. Wormwood also helps produce bile, which in turn helps the liver and gallbladder.

    CLOVES - Cloves contain eugenol, caryophyllene, and tannins which are powerful anti-microbial properties – these components are what actually travel in the bloodstream killing microscopic parasites and all parastitic larvae and eggs. Eugonal is the most powerful anti-microbial agents known. Eugonal kills all microscopic protoza and removes parasite eggs in every stage of development. Cloves are tremendously effective in killing malaria, tuberculosis, cholera, scabies and other parasites, viruses, bacteria and fungi including candida Cloves also destroy pseudomonas aeruginosa, all species of shigella, staph and strep.

    THYME – Thyme contains thymol, carvacrol and flavonoids which are effective in killing bacteria (such as fungal infections ie: yeast infections) and are especially effective in killing hookworms, roundworms, threadworms and skin parasites.Thyme also destroys Cryptococcus neoformans, Aspergillus, Saprolegnia, and Zygorhynchus species. AND Salmonella typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureas, Escherichia coli and other bacterial species. As an antibiotic, thymol is 25 times more effective than phenol, but much less toxic. Thyme is the primary ingredient in LISTERINE MOUTHWASH because of its germ killing power. It is anti-viral and anti-fungal.

    GARLIC - Garlic can slow and kill, more than sixty types of fungi and twenty types of bacteria, including some of the most potent viruses known to man. Garlic alone can help in controlling parasites. Garlic has a history of being able to kill parasites and control secondary fungal infections; detoxify and gently stimulate elimination; it also has antioxidant properties to protect against oxidation caused by parasites' toxins. Allicin and Ajoene, are the components in Garlic that kill parasites including the one-cell varaties as well as pinworms and hookworms. Garlic has antimicrobial activities (including anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-protozoal, and anti-parasitic) that kills: B. subtilis, E. coli, P. mirabilis, Salmonella typhi, methicillin-resistant Staph aureus, Staph faecalis, salmonella enteritidis, and V. cholerae ,staphylococcus, Escherichia, Proteus, Salmonella, Providencia, Citrobacter, Klebsiella, Hafnia, Aeromonas, Vibrio and Bacillus genera. Garlic is also very effective against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Garlic also kills Microsporum, Epidermophyton, Trichophyton, Rhodotorula, Torulopsis, Trichosporon, Cryptococcus neoformans, and Candida, including Candida albicans. Garlic also has anti-amoebic and anti-protozoan properties and is especially effective against Entamoeba histolytica and Paramecium caudatum.

    FENNEL - This herb is known to be anti-parasitic. Fennel Seed is used to help remove and expel Parasites and their waste and from the body. Fennel is also very effective against Candida Albicans.

    CAYENNE – Capsicum is the component in cayenne that destroys parasites. It is a very effective herb for the elimination of parasites.

    GINGER – The components of gingerol (zingiberone, bisabolene, camphene, geranial, linalool and borneol) found in ginger are what destroys parasites including the roundworm, the blood fluke the anisakid worm, and bacteria including salmonella.

    GENTIAN – This herb is wonderful for ridding the body of parasites including plasmodia which is the malaria causing parasite . It is more effective than quinine. Gentian is also good for treating anemia and counteracting the effects of parasite toxins in the body by stimulating the liver to produce more bile.

    HYSSOP - Hyssop contains an essential hormone oil which is very effective in destroying a variety of parasites and is very effective against the herpes simplex virus.

    [​IMG] All we use are organic medications. Couldn't be happier. It takes longer and is more work but that's fine for me!

    There is an article on homeopathic remedies for chickens in Hobby Farms Chickens March/April 2012 Edition, it was a great read and I came out with a wonderful garlic mash recipe that my chickens LOVE!

    I am always looking for natural ways to do things. Now I just have to figure out how to incorporate some of this into the chickens diet.

    Be careful if you plan on using some of these 'remeddies'. Black walnut and wormwood in particular can be quite toxic.

    Can you just put some chopped up garlic into their treats sprinkled with some cayenne pepper,ginger every other day or how often is it okay to feed your chickens something like that to use as a natural method of killing worms?
    Or how often is it okay to feed them any of these things on this list?
    Id like to incorporate them into their diet daily or weekly but want to make sure how often its okay to do so.
    Thankyou for this list!
    Id rather go this route then other methods for keeping the chickens healthy from parasites!

    Quote: There's little evidence any of the things listed actually work .
    Like most "home" remedies, the only sites that promote them tend to be sites that SELL them too

    As a general rule, if you can't find a university study to support the claims, they are usually false

    And too much Garlic will make your eggs taste funny

    Most of the items listed go really well with BAKED chicken, though [​IMG]

    What a great list. I've been doing garlic and cayenne mixed with raw onions for as long as I've had chickens and we've never had a bad taisting egg yet. Thanks for this list I'm going to print it up for my customers. Almost everyone I know around here, that has chickens only wants natural deworming methods vs the synthetic ones.

    I can vouch that Lavender Hyssop ( a good sub for anise), [​IMG] when added to a couple stalks of Cat Mint, will `destroy' one species of parasite/predator, for about 30 minutes. This is about 5 minutes more than is observed when the Cat Mint, alone, is `administered'... [​IMG]
