    We were just told we should be worming our chickens. The only wormer at our feed store is for 100+ chickens (we only have 11) AND it said not to use in chickens who are layings eggs intended for human consumption. SO do y'all use an egg safe wormer, or not worm at all, or do you have a safer alternative? Thanks in advance!

    Fenbendazole and discard the eggs for 2 weeks from eating----you can hatch them. This is what I do.
