I don't really know but I had mine in with the chickens when they were last done and it didn't do them any harm so I'll worm them with verm-x and flubenvet same as the hens, unless someone on here says not to

Ver-mex goes into the drinking water and is to be reccommended, this is a herbal remedy and you don't have to discard eggs after use.
 Fluevenet is a different kettle of fish and needs eggs to be discarded after use.
WARNING!!!!! My nephew used fluvenet to worm his hens and, as usual, put the cleanings from his hen-house in the compost bin. All the earth and manure worms in the bin died!

verm-x is a natural product, given once a month and I added to their feed - I got granules.  Flubenvet is a drug type wormer with full instructions - I use it every few months to make sure they are kept worm free as they are in a static run.  You don't have egg withdrawal with it.

just found this on Practical Poultry: according to the manufacturer
  >>Flubenvet is good in that you do not have to withdraw the eggs for consumption - which is reassuring even if the eggs are only for your personal use. <<

yup there is a withdrawl period if selling. which is a bit odd as we are allowed to eat them.
