    As Dawg will tell you Valbazen is a great wormer. He suggested it to me when my chickens had gape worm.

    It is 14 days. Dawg recommends 1/2 cc for standar size chickens and 1/4 cc for smaller size. Given orally with a needleless syringe. It can be mixed with water but this way you know every chicken gets an accurate dose.

    He then suggests to worm again 10 days after the first time.

    I have heard that diatomaceous earth works well for de-worming animals.

    I have never used it specifically for that purpose but I do feed it to my chickens daily (I just sprinkle it on top of their feed) and they have never had any problems.

    If you have a worm infestation, DE will not help you much. It doesn't work well when wet, so of course, when in the intestinal tract, it is very wet.
