    My chickens are about 16 1/2 weeks and I want to worm my chickens. They are all healthy and active but I have noticed a lot of runny poop and a friend said they probably needed to be wormed. I know garlic and pumpkin are natural de-wormers and my friend suggested giving yogurt as well. Do you think these natural methods will work as well as medications? And if medications are needed I'd like to avoid having to stick it down their gullet. Something I can put in the water would be nice. Can they be purchased at places like TSC or do I have to go to the vet? Thanks~~

    Use wazine 17 to worm them, your feed store or TSC should carry it...just follow the directions on the label. Natural wormers are preventatives, not treatments.
