    Should I worm before harvesting birds? I know if you do worm, wait about a month. But is it necessary to worm?

    I don't think many people worm their meat birds, I know I don't.

    OK, thank you. Yeah I don't ever think my grandparents wormed theirs, considering we were poor and out in the middle of no where.LOL

    a lot of people feed additives of Apple Cider Vineagar, red chili peppers , and DE to discourage worms naturally. I use ACV and DE myself. Another guy on this thread with more experience than me uses the red chili peppers.
