    depends if you have a worm issue in your herd. I only worm as needed with my adults as well as my kids

    I start watchign for worm issues around 2 weeks of age. IF they dont show any signs of worms before they leave I will at times worm them before leaving my herd when sold.

    as to what you can use. I use both horse paste wormers and injectable wormers (most of the time I give it orally)

    I have heard to deworm as soon as you start seeing signs, otherwise 6-8 weeks old.
