    Hello, I have six hens who are one this year and I wanted to know what kind of vaccinations they might need or other meds ( wormer etc.) to keep them healthy - or should I not worry about it. They are all healthy girls and doing well [​IMG] Thank you

    I've never had vaccines given to my birds, and the only ones I am aware of are for cocci and mericks and those are both day olds... and not necessary in most home flock situations.

    I've personally not wormed in the 10 years I've had my flock, however, others do have a worming schedules and they can better tell you what they do. I've never wormed because the parasite load on them has never been great enough to affect their weight, appetite or egg laying to my notice.
