    Hi [​IMG] Welcome To BYC

    How old is your chick?
    Any photos of the worm(s) and chick?

    What symptoms are you seeing that makes you think she has worms?

    Generally chicks that young don't have worms. The best thing to do if you suspect they have worms is to take a fecal sample to your vet for testing.
