My RIR hen seems to have worms ALL the time. Since about August/September I have tried to treat all 3 of my birds with Wazine (didn't work) and then a standard treatment with Valbazine (seemed to work but worms came back) and then a more serious type treatment with Valbazine when it was confirmed that she had tape worm (direct shots of Valbazine into the mouth of all 3 of my chickens 3 separate times, each session three days apart - as I was instructed to do). She seems totally fine, they all do! She eats, drinks, runs around, lays eggs... though I've always considered her to be a bit of a pig when she eats and maybe having worms is why she eats so much cuz she isn't getting the nutrition? But she doesn't seem to be losing weight, she's pretty heavy actually. But today, once again, I saw what looked like 4 or 5 small possibly tapeworm segments that had wiggled their way out of her poo and died out in the sun. I don't know what to do... I live on Guam so it is very hot and humid all the time and we are in rainy season right now so yes the ground is frequently moist and perfect for worms. But I worry about constantly giving them worming meds... not to mention that I can't eat/have to throw away the eggs for what basically ends up being 4 weeks (give the meds, wait 10 days give meds again, then wait 14 days to eat eggs). That is such a waste of eggs and feels like I'm poisoning them rather than helping. What do I do? Do I just wait it out until "dry season" comes along (December - June)? I'm very frustrated... I've been told it's okay because birds just get worms and while I do agree with that I'm also worried that they will kill her/them. The others don't seem to have it, ever... unless they're just not as "infested"? I don't know. I don't know what to do... at the end of the day, I'm just worried to lose one of them but what's the point of keeping them if all I ever do is medicate them and can't eat their eggs... *sigh* Please help.
