    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    How do you know they have worms? And what type of worms do you think they have?

    Since I don't know what type they have, you might worm them with Valbazen. It will take care of all worms, tape worms included.

    If this is a standard breed chicken, then 1/2 cc of Valbazen every 3 days for 9 days. So another words, on day 1, 4 and 7.

    If this is a bantam type breed, same time frame but use 1/4 cc. You can either put this in 1cc of gerber baby food and squirt it onto her middle tongue or put this med on a small amount of warmed, chopped hard boiled eggs or even yogurt. Make sure she gets all the meds.

    You can also send a poop sample off to your vet so you know exactly what type of worms you are dealing with.

    Can you post a pic please? Excreted worms are white or off white in color. You might be seeing shed intestinal lining.
