    How do you know if your flock has worms? also if found to have them what is the best method ofr treating them? Not getting any eggs so assuming this could be the problem.

    You can see worms in their poop, but are they moulting? did you change their food? weather changes can affect them. some can go on for weeks not laying eggs

    You should deworm your flock every 6 months as a preventative. Valbazen is a good. They could stop laying because of a worm infestation, but other things like changes in the weather, their food and things like getting moved, stressed, broodiness and moulting are also possible causes.
