Garlic can be a preventive for worms and is considered an organic de-wormer for chickens.

Garlic, allium sativum, is a perennial that grows from bulbs. Place crushed garlic pieces in your chickens’ waterer for a week’s time. Also acts as an insect repellent.

Don’t feed garlic directly to your hens, because their eggs will take on a garlic flavor. Remember to put a few cloves of crushed garlic in their water for worming, using moderation.
