    1. What's the best way to worm free range chickens?
    2. Old hen has nasty vent - bloody, clogged, matted feathers. I cleaned it off with warm rag as good as I could. What else?

    is she laying? could she be getting a prolaspe vent? try to soak her in a warm bath, it will relaxe her muscles and clean her up at the same time

    Quote:1. Try and catch them at night, use a net if you have to and pen them up. Use Valbazen to worm them.
    2. What tammye stated. If it's prolapse, gently push it back in and put preparation H on it to help shrink it.
