I have a crazy question. My friend who is just now getting into chickens called me all upset a while ago. Seems like she was cleaning around her chicken pen and found where some feed had fallen into the concrete block that supports her feeder. She turned over the block and found a double handful of maggots which her young pullets proceeded to devour. Her father told her that if the chicks ate the maggots whole, the maggots would attach to her chicks insides and kill them. I never heard of such. I asked my husband and he said Oh yeah, maggots will kill chickens. When they go through the gizzard, doesn't that grind them up? Once they hit the stomach, don't the digestive juices take care of them? Has anyone else heard of this? I need something to reassure my friend, she is worried sick about her pullets.
