Mummy hen has worms

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

For the past 2 weeks we have been looking after a mummy hen and 5 chicks as our friend is moving house... she has been sneezing and coughing, and I thought she had a respiratory infection so treated her with tylan. But this morning I let them out and she done her first big poo of the day and there was wiggly worms in it, only about a cm long, quite small... thought my eyes were playing tricks!! 
So I guess her and her chicks will need treated, what product is best for treating baby chicks too, they are 2 weeks old 😰

I also have 4 chickens of my own so they will probably need treated too! 
Any advice/tips are very much appreciated!!
