poultry worming schedule

Asked August 15, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

I am in search of information on worming poultry. I have a small flock of laying hens and have had a difficult time finding solid, fact based info on worming. Specifically what to use, withdrawal times and worming of chicks and juveniles. Thanks, Juley Alabakoff

Here is a link to a fact sheet from Cooperative Extension in New Hampshire (in partnership with Connecticut) on internal parasites of poultry. It is fairly basic but well done.

See recommendations in the fact sheet.

A fecal sample ought to be taken to a vet to determine if the hens have worms - and if so, what type of worm is present.
