    :lol: I've had that happen! Get you some safeguard liquid goat wormer at the feed store (125ml bottle.) Use a syringe without a needle to administer the wormer orally undiluted to each chicken. Dosage is 1/2cc for standard size birds, 1/4cc for smaller birds. Redose them again in 10 days. There's a 14 day withdrawal period after the last dosing. The safeguard will take care of the large roundworms and other types of worms as well.
