Hi, Want to know what people do with their meat birds? Do you worm them a week or two before culling? Maybe give them some vitamins? Some alternative diet? Lots of DE or garlic? Also, would you do anything differently if some of the birds in your coop recently had lice? A few birds had it bad, most just had some. One had mites for sure. All the sick birds I got are getting treated. I have taken in a number of unwanted birds just before winter. Some are too old to lay. Some just don't lay, still trying to guess why. Have a few roosters young/old. Etc etc. Just want to know what people do. Since I found mites and lice, I have been paranoid about eating meat birds. I feel that I should give them some de-wormer....or treat them somehow. Primarily because I don't know how most of these birds spent their lives. I want my flock to be healthy. And have safe meat to consume. Lastly, my wife is breastfeeding, so I would be skeptical about using crazy chemicals that "kill everything" type of stuff. Any ideas are appreciated! Newby here. Edit: Does cooking chicken at a certain temperature, kill all bugs, worms, diseases inside?
