Worming Chicks

Advertisement Purina Flock Layer
Hello and welcome to BYC from Kentucky!

First how old are your chicks? Are they showing signs of needing to be wormed?

Garlic has been used as a natural way. You can make a garlic concentrate which can be mixed in with the water along with adding food grade DE to the feed. The garlic and DE method should then be repeated a week later. Cayenne pepper is also often used in protecting the flock against parasitic worms.

A natural product called Verm X can be used. In their own words, 100% Natural Herbal Formula with NO withdrawal period for eggs or birds. Here is their link: http://verm-xusa.com/poultry/cat_6.html

every year i grow and dry cayene peppers, i use them every 2 weeks as a natural wormer and supplement. Chickens cannot taste the heat in peppers and my always love anything that is red.
