Treatment for Warm in chickens
Worms in chicken can be treated with chemical drugs or with natural herbs. I don’t advise on chemical drugs because continuous use of some of them makes the worms to develop resistance thus continuing to survive in the chicken. Another disadvantage is that using some of them, you are not allowed to consume the eggs produced during deworming. So, it’s good to use herbal medicine because the worms don’t develop any resistance and you can continue consuming the eggs even during deworming time.
