Deworming Egg Layers

Asked August 1, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

Should my laying hens be on a deworming schedule? If so, what should I use? The only thing I have found at local feed stores is Wazine 17. At the end of the directions, it says, "Do not use in chickens producing eggs for human consumption."

We do not worry about deworming our chickens. It has not been a problem for us. I am not sure of a normal treatment for that condition. If you feel you have a problem in that area, please contact your veterinarian.
