    my chickens were suffering gape worm i managed to cure all the chickens, then i got two more and one of them had gape worm and my cockerel did so they were given flubenvet (or how every you spell it) for a month and a couple of week after, my orpington is fine now as are the other hens but my cockerel had just got worse and worse, anything else i could do or do i have to just let nature take its course or what ever that saying is. the cockerel is about 8-9 years old

    Ivermectin pour on for cattle might be a better treatment for gapeworm.
