Hey everyone- brought home a 7 week old Roo (australorp) and maybe he has worms? Here is a picture- recommendations? Thank you in advance. I have 20 5 1/2 week chicks... Should I worm them all? Have not grouped them together

others have told me that you can get a fecal float test done to get an accurate count of worms/eggs in the feces, which will determine if there is an overload of worms. If there is an overload, then you may need to treat. I do not think it is recommended to deworm chicks that young (the 5 1/2 week olds).

How old do chicks need to be in order to worm?
