    Does anyone know of a wormer you can use on meat birds. I've heard about using DE but I'm skeptical that it works for that purpose. One of the birds I processed yesterday had some worms but not a heavy infestation. Is this just to be expected? Thanks.

    What is the brand name for that wormer? Do you know a source? I'm in Marianna, about 60 miles west of Tallahassee.
