    Day old chicks are arriving Tuesday.

    When should I worm them and with what?

    You may get varying opinions on the worming thing but I have never wormed my birds in 10 years... and others worm on a regular schedule. I personally don't think they need to be wormed unless you suspect and can confirm they have worms. Remember not to eat eggs for a week or two if you chose to worm them as the wormer does get passed into the eggs.
