    I have 5 chickens, and I am wondering if I should worm them, or should let them do whatever they want? And if I should, what are some brands to look for and names of medications? Just letting people know, no eggs yet, just two 7th month olds and two 4 month olds.

    I worm once yearly as a preventitive but I don't worm them until they have been laying for awhile. now if you free range you should definitly worm annualy or biannualy. I use Wazine diluted in their drinking water and it does have an egg holdback period of 14day's.
