I have free range six month old chickens. And recently discover tape worm segments in their poo. I freaked out as I naively didn't think that this would be an issue in chickens. I have taken them to the vet and had them de wormed. I will continue the medicine as recommended and de worm Regularly. My concern is my children although we maintain good
Hygiene my children love the chickens and are always out there playing with them and bringing in the eggs (she has only just started laying) I can't guarantee that my children haven't touched something and not washed their hands. My question is are my children at risk of contracting tape worm from the infected chickens?
