Fowler, if you try it, would you be willing to do FEC before and after treatment? I would love to see if it actually works!

Re: Deworming chickens - What product to use?

In  the  Lincoln trial, ewes  grazing  plantain  produced faecal egg  counts  through lactation which  were one  third  to  one  quarter of those grazing ryegrass. The  mechanism  for  this  effect  with  plantain  is not clear. In a Farmer Initiated Technology & Transfer project in Southland where  there  was no difference in  growth  rates  for  ewes  and  lambs  grazing  plantain  enhanced  pasture. 
Faecal  egg  counts  showed  a tendency, after a lengthy period of exposure, to be lower where plantain was a part of the diet. Dagginess levels were also generally less in lambs grazing plantain (Turner,  2002)


As a point of interest, here is a blog where a guy did his own little trial of various dewormers on his goats.

Come on, it would be fun!! I am testing oregano oil on my chicks this year. :)

If it works, we'll all be planting plantain!

Re: Deworming chickens - What product to use?

In all my years of poultry I have never seen worms from my chickens even used to do the centrifuge n boiled sugar solution looking for  the things I used to have a print out of. But I might just for fun give them plantain leaves now lol. Make sure every year they dewormed lol. thanks for that

No need to plant it. It grows naturally pretty much anywhere.  :thumbsup:

You just have to find it and identify it correctly.

That's good! You should never be able to "see" the worms. If you see worms in their poop, you already have a big problem. If you have a microscope, you can look for the worms eggs in the poop, which is what they count when you take a sample in to the vet. :)

The first trio of chickens I ever got had the WORST case of worms I have ever seen. A huge pile of roundworms in one of their droppings the morning after I got them. Ewwwwww! I dewormed them ASAP and returned them to health and they started laying not long after. Poor things.

@niglefritz I looked it up and I do have some of that! I will have to try to remember it in the spring when I start weeding!
