    I have found Molly's Herbal Wormer formulas to be safe, non-toxic, gentle, and effective:


    Molly's Herbals Worm Formula for ALL ANIMALS.
    The original two part system, works holistically in multiple ways.
    • By expelling live worms: the worms hate being around the herb so much they would rather leave the host than be around the herb. Because of this, you may see worms in the animal's poops after they have been wormed.​
    • By killing and expelling the parasites.​
    • By helping the animal build a stronger immune system so they can more easily fight an infestation.​
    • Working as a preventive: By helping the animal build a stronger immune system so that they can resist the parasite and thus not become infected in the first place. Healthy animals are much less likely to get infected than unhealthy ones. ​
    • There has been no evidence to show that worms build up resistance to this herbal system like they can do with Chemical and Drug wormers.​
    • Molly's Herbals Worm Formula is a two part system and, when used as recommended, is safe to administer to pregnant and lactating animals.​

    Here's a link to Molly's website: http://www.fiascofarm.com/herbs/mollysherbals.php/categories/herbal-wormer

    Rotate wormers to prevent resistance building up.

    The only approved wormer for poultry is Wazine, and is not approved for egglayers.

    There are NO wormers approved for egglayers.

    A number of folks (although it would always be recommended to ask a veterinarian) use wormers off-label and toss eggs for at least a couple of weeks.

    Wazine only kills large roundworms.

    Here is a nice chart: All wormers should be repeated to stop the worm life cycle.

    Valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer kills all known types of worms that chickens can get, including eyeworm and flukes.

    I understand that this is an off label use, but what age would this be safe for and how much would I need to use?
