    I have 6 chickens, 4 are 21 weeks old and 2 are 18 weeks old. When do I start worming them? What do you worm chickens with? how much? how often? Sorry for all the questions in a row lol Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    At the top of this page there is a search option next to Rules and My Page. Type in Worming. It will have all the information you need there are tons of threads on it.

    Im not sure abut when you can start worming them, but I give my chickens Wazine you can ge at Tractor Supply. It gets rid of worms and prevents them. It says all the instructions on the bottle. You can't eat the eggs after 14 days when you put it in the water.
