    Just butchered 6 roosters this morning and 3 of them had worms in the breast meat.
    Is this fairly common? and what can I use to get rid of the worms
    thank you

    I have seen it a few times. the ones I had were hook worms. I would try pour on Ivemec or Valbazen. If you use these it will be a while before you can eat them or the eggs
