One of my hens has had watery droppings for a while and this morning I found that she had passed a large worm. I tried to identify it from online sources and I think it's a round worm (light pink, long and twisted, and about 1/16" thick.) I put DE in her food right away and added ACV to her water. The site says to give "Verm-X" but I can't find it on Amazon. What would you recommend?

Welcone to BYC.
Are you in the US?
If so you can use Safeguard.
It's sold as a goat liquid or a horse paste.


You need to treat ALL birds at the same time.

De won't do a thing for worms.
Neither will AVC.
Please don't waste your time with either.
Neither will verm x.

Thank you! I just ordered Safeguard liquid for goats. Since the label will apply to giving it to goats, how much and how often would I give it to chickens?
