    I took these pics about 9 days ago. I've been treating my 16 week-old BO's with Corid for cocci.

    Do you think they have worms too? I think I see a little worm in there....

    Hi there Agnella,

    It's a little hard to tell from your pics for absolute certain, but assume you have worms and get them treated ASAP. There are plenty of threads here about de-working protocol. I use wazine, but I don't know anything about your flock. Best of luck!

    Thanks so much!

    They're just about done with a round of Corid so I think I'll wait a week to treat them for worms. This morning I saw some rice-looking pieces in some droppings so I know that there are definitely worms now.

    They are only 16 weeks old so no eggs yet.


    Thanks again!

    Use wazine 17 to worm. The eggs are safe to eat after 14 days. You can also use Valbazen , 14 day withdrawal period as well.

    Wazine should not be used in hens where their eggs are eaten for human consumption or hatching.

    If there were any other wormers approved for poultry, I bet they'd say the same thing, but there aren't.

    There are no wormers made for poultry other than Wazine and that is only for roundworms. If you don't worm them, a heavy worm load could kill. The only wormer I know of that has no withdrawal (for cattle, no withdrawal for meat or milk) would be Eprinex Pour On.​
