    Kinda new to chickens but I have Miss Nugget and shes about 16 weeks old and is a house chicken..yes a house chicken lol. Do I still need to worm her even tho she spends majority of her time inside and if so what and how? She does go outside but not for long she comes right back up and wants inside when she gets hot. Thanks for any help in advance [​IMG]

    I have heard you only worm them when they turn one year old.

    Oh my, that is so funny in that picture of the cats and the chicken. Seems like they get along well! How do you keep Miss Nugget in the house without her pooping everywhere? Does she where a diaper?
