    When should you worm your chickens? What should you use? Mine are two months old. Thanks.

    I personally don't worm my chickens, haven't done so in 10+ years, and don't plan on doing it unless a fecal float test comes back positive for worms and they have a load larger than they can healthily carry.

    Some do worm though, so they'd have to share what they use.

    Quote:That is good to know Silkie. I have not wormed mine yet and I have had them for a year and a half. I may have a fecal run though, just to check.

    Dude99, there is an ongoing thread in this section about worming that is about 3 pages now. It has some good information. Scroll down.....
