I'm a new chicken owner. I have 6 mix breeds (5 hens and a rooster) who started laying in august or september, if I remember right. I also have 5 muscovy ducks(parents and three ducklings, the two male ducklings will eventually be sold so they don't fight or harass the females). They all live together, and the chickens are losing a bit of weight. I suspect it's the lowering temperatures (or that they ate all plants from the run), but just in case it is more, I'd like to know the best wormers for ducks and chickens? My family and I will be going to a feed and pet store tomorrow to get some higher protein food for them, and I might pick up a wormer if they have one. Speaking of feed, the store we normally go to doesn't have flock raiser or game bird feed. I'll see the other store, but what other feed would have higher protein the plain layer?
