what do you use to worm your chicks and chickens
Some people use some form of ivermectin. Usually pour on or the injection mixed in water. Ivermectin is expensive as it's for cattle and usually comes in large quantities. Unless you have a large flock to treat, this can be a painful expense as you use so little of it. It stores for up to two years some previous posters have mentioned.
Someone also mentioned wazine once, but I think that only treats roundworms. Ivermectin will also treat mites and lice, or so I've read. I have yet to find a good poultry wormer.
