In the market the other day I had a friend ask me if I have had any problems with worms in my chickens. She went on to describe how she can see her chicken pooping out worms. I haven't had any problems with this before and have no idea how to treat it naturally. Has anyone here had experience with this and has a good remedy? Thanks!

I've heard that feeding them raw pumpkin is a good, natural dewormer. Hope that helps!

The husks of a black walnut is a natural dewormer. I am not sure the exact amount to give chickens but you could probably grind some of the husk up and add it to there water. I have seen it work for humans, goats, and dogs. Good luck.

Food grade diatomaceous earth is all around safe dewormer for anything! Especially good for us too!! Besides that, the aforementioned black walnut.
 
You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
