the gut and are passed out in the droppings
before they cause harm to the bird.

options and feel your birds are still not quite

worms. You can do this by using a Chicken
Vet faecal sampling kit, then worming if
advised when you get your results. Optimal
gut health will prolong the life of the older
hen.
