Additional feedback from customers:
I hope you don’t mind me making a comment, but we have wormed our chickens for years by adding a scoop or two of diatomaceous earth to their food and mixing it in. You can buy it at D & B. Make sure it is food grade diatomaceous earth.
If you notice a reduction in egg production, diarrhea and weight loss then you surely have a problem.

A: Apple cider vinegar is a common one for natural digestive aid and Diatomaceous Earth is used for parasite prevention as well.
Q: Can the chickens pass any diseases to the kids that play in the backyard.
