    Do you worm your chickens? I'm just curious how many of you out there worm your chickens. If you do, what do you use and how often? Can the eggs still be considered ORGANIC?

    Thank You!

    I actually just started using food/pet grade Diatomaceous Earth for my chickens and other animals as a wormer and parasite control in general. I just offer it as a dust bath, but they usually eat a bit of it too. I have heard great things about it and it's 100% natural,

    Thank you Snozzle. I will have to see if I can find some info on it and maybe give it a try. I was unsure if chickens need wormed or not, but i figgured if all the other farm animals do, the chickens might as well.

    Thanks Again!

    I found a big 4 lb jug of it at tractor supply for under $10.
