    My pullets are 20 weeks now. Tell me about worming. When? How? Why? How often? Does it effect egg production? Whatever you have to share would be great.[​IMG]

    We don't use commercial wormers for a number of reasons. So we try to take the preventative approach.

    Worming is hard on the birds and you shouldn't (in my opinion) worm unless you have evidence it is needed.

    Do a search and you'll find tons of info.
