    Has anyone wormed their flock in 2 different groups?? I want to worm half now and the other half 10 days later so im not without eggs. Any opinions on this???

    Well, this might work! However, if all of your chickens are kept in the same area, how would you tell which eggs belonged to the dewormed birds, and which eggs would be safe to eat? So, it might not work out as well.

    I have white and green layers and then brown layers. So i would worm them according to egg color..green and white first then the brown layers.

    If you're of a mind to worm them, it sounds like a good plan. I feel sorry for folks who worm and then are without eggs.
