Worming Your Backyard Chickens: Facts & Fiction [Podcast]

Let’s face it. If you have chickens, you probably have worms as well.


When it comes to livestock, worms and a worming program are just a natural part of life.


There’s a lot of information out there, so in this episode of What The Cluck?! we talk about the different traditional options, as well as natural ways to worm a chicken with a butt load of worms.  


We also debunk some myths, and look at what options REALLY work…and which are myth.


You’ll learn:

  • Why a worming program is necessary for your flock
  • How to tell if your hens are wormy
  • Natural options you can try out
  • The one product on the market that I think is total BS
