    Dog worms do not infest birds, or vice verse. You can, however, get some kinds of worms (roundworms, hookworms) from your dog, so you definitely want to get that taken care of pronto - as well as a good yard cleanup.

    ok thanks good to know, I know we can get them, just didn't know if it could be passed to the chickens. I have already wormed the pup so that is out of the way ... as far as the yard cleaning... well we have 6" of snow right now so that will have to wait ... lol [​IMG]
