    Hi Everyone,

    Do I need to worm my adult chickens? I was thumbing through the Wilco catalog, and they had wormer for chickens, so that got me wondering. What are the signs & symptoms of worms in chickens? I am loving my girls. I had no idea having chickens would be so much fun!

    Thanks,

    Dee

    Darn I can't remember...


    Hmm... someone will post it for you, but we do it at night.. and we sneak in and fill up little syringes and dab them with the drench on the skin. It comes premixed up for cattle and you use it off label for chickens.
