    My chickens have worms - at least 2 of them do. Just noticed it yesterday in the runny poop.
    Has anyone ever heard of using Apple Cider Vinegar or Garlic as natural remedies and if so, what did you do and did it work?
    What are some of the options used that you can purchase at the feed store, vet, etc.?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I use ACV all the time in their water and will give them yogurt mixed with cayenne pepper on occasion. I've never had worms show up in their poo as far as I can tell. The problem is that most natural remedies for deworming are great for preventative measures but don't always do a good job actually curing an infestation. By all means, go for it! Just don't be too disappointed if the infestation isn't completely eradicated.

    Pumpkin seeds are supposed to be great, too. And garlic, like hcppam said [​IMG]
