What a difference

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by CountryRoosterUSA, Jan 29, 2012.

  1. We have 3 red stars, not our only girls, but the oldest. They are around 2 1/2 yrs. old.
    These 3 haven't laid an egg in close to 2 months or more. They would get around just fine ,but didn't seem to have any pep in their step. I have never wormed them before, I guess because I never saw any signs of worms. But I thought I would give it a go anyway.

    To my surprise, in just 3 days they were back to laying eggs and running around like the young ones. I couldn't believe it. Of course I did dispose of the eggs and will for about 2 weeks after the second worming.

    I used Valbazen 1/2cc down their throat. I just now wormed them again today, its been 10 days sense the first time. It made a believer out of me.

    Better deworm your other chickens too if you have not already done it [​IMG]
