Hello BYC Friends, I have a small flock of almost 2 years hens. I have never wormed. I live in Upstate NY, where it gets very cold. Couple of questions: 1) Can worms effect egg production? I am getting very few eggs daily and probably coming from my two new girls. Some girls have not laid in several months? Is that normal? 2) I have read that Cayenne Pepper can be used as natural wormer. What are your thoughts of mixing cayenne pepper into yogurt? Do you use gound pepper or flakes? 3) If I use this method, do I repeat daily for life? Thanks!
