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.
- 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
