    The chickens that I'm now caring for were never wormed, I'm just wondering if you need to worm then, and any other health Medicine and you can add to keep them fit, most are really old but we have 3 that are only 4 months old.. I know you can by the worming solution, is there anything else I need?

    I don't know about vets over there, but I can usually take a poop sample and pay the vet $10 to do a fecal test and check for worms. That way, you don't have to give excess medication if they don't need it. To keep them healthy, I always suggest probiotics (like adding yogurt to some feed for a treat).
