    I live in BC and while most of the city can't keep chickens the area where I live can so there aren't really any chicken experts nearby that I can ask for advice. I only have 2 laying hens that are 9 months old and I think one of them has worms. She has lost weight and her comb and wattles are very pale and small. I have checked for external parasites but I haven't seen any. I have been reading through all the worm threads and I see that many people recommend starting with wazine and then using a broad spectrum wormer a week later. If I go to a feed store what should I be looking for?

    Well, the only thing I have used on my chooks is ivomec. I used it for lice treatment, but it treats some worms also. My ivermec is .8%, I think. I'm pretty sure TSC doesn't carry any dewormers, I got mine at my local feed store/purina dealer. they dont sell ivomec specifically for chickens or rabbits for that matter..Mine is sheep drench and the name brand is noromectin
