I know I had a hard time finding the info for how many is too many and what amount of eggs are considered to warrant treatment or not. So for barberpole worm, officially as per which has very reputable info on barberpole worm, acceptable FEC's and when to treat:

"You need to deworm dry does and bucks when the fecal egg count exceeds 2,000 eggs per gram. For lactating does, yearlings and kids, 1,000 eggs per gram or more is reason to deworm. Fecal egg counts for deworming are similar for sheep. If you have lactating dairy does, those with over 750 eggs per gram will require deworming.

Hope that information can help some. (punch):reading::poop:
