    I have been looking for an all around general, safe worm treatment that I can treat my chickens' 5 gallon water container with but don't have a clue on product names and/or dosages. I would prefer a treatment that still allows for the consumption of eggs. Would appreciate any recommendations. I have heard that some people always maintain a de wormer in the water container as a preventative measure as opposed to treating in cycles.

    @casportpony is likely one of the best people to advise, as is @RavynFallen . I'm sure that they will be along in the course of the day

    Is it safe to consume the eggs during treatment or is there a withdrawal period?
