    Should I be concerned abourt worming my flock of two month old chicks? Are there some natural home methods? Garlic powder? What about apple cider vinegar?

    We wormed our chicks at around that age because we were concerned about dodgy poops. After they had been wormed this cleared up...I can't remember what we used to worm them though, sorry, hope someone else can be more helpful.

    We've never wormed our flock and the oldest are 2 years old. We feed them yogurt, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, garlic and Food Grade DE.
