Depends on the type of worm. Didn't the vet tell you what it was? Didn't he prescribe anything? What gives?
I can't imagine his report said a "worm type parasite" The type of worm will dictate which wormer and how to administer.
It should have at least identified if they were flatworms or nematodes. or said tapeworm, fluke, capillary, cecal, crop worm, stomach worm, roundworms, eyeworm, gapeworm, etc..

They did say it was not round or tape worms
Then that leaves capillary or cecal worms. Purchase Safeguard liquid goat wormer. Use a syringe without a needle to administer the wormer orally undiluted to each chicken. Dosage is 1/2cc orally for standard size chickens, 1/4cc for smaller chickens. Dose them once a day for 5 days straight. Toss eggs in the garbage for 2 weeks after the 5th day.
