    Just a silly question - as I have been entertaining the thought of raising a few broilers this year..
    Does anyone worm their broilers before slaughter? Maybe when they're 6 wks. or so?
    These babies seem like voracious eat-anything-in-their-path creatures...so is anyone concerned about them being infected with worms during the 8-12 weeks wait before slaughter?
    Looking forward to your input!

    No, I don't eat the stomach or intestins or anything that might have worms in it--that I know of. I think that is the whole point of being santitary while butchering.
