    Brand new chicken owner here, someone told me that i need to worm her once a month? Also, should i have her on any other medicines? She is about ten weeks old.

    Thanks!

    I would say at 10 weeks she doesn't need to be wormed. And no meds. either. You might want to add ACV to her drinking water, 1 tab. to 1 gallon it helps to keep crop neutral and also helps with digestion. Do you have her on chick starter/grower and is it medicated? and [​IMG]
