    Hi, I just ordered my first baby chicks, do I worm them at some point in their lives? Karen

    Some people worm them when they find the birds production slow down or if they find worms after a fecal float test. Some people worm every few months. Some people feed pumpkin seeds in season, while others keep up with the DE in the feed. Personally I have never wormed and mine are fine.

    Are pumpkin seeds a natural dewormer? What about pumpkin?
