    Someone mentioned worming in this section so hope I'm not out of place in asking....at what age should they be wormed?

    Most of my chickens, I've never wormed.
    Some people worm on a schedule but I think most of them live in warm moist climates.
    I would take a fecal sample to a vet and have it tested to see if they have worms, what kind and how much of a load they have.
    Free range chickens will always have some worms. Penned chickens on soil will have more. Caged chickens usually won't have any.
