Papaya seeds are good dewormers for chicken
Attention poultry raisers!
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol just confimed that that the black rounded seeds of Papaya are good dewormers for chicken.
“I saw an interesting video about the health benefits of papaya seeds in a public website. While I still have to see scientific studies on the efficacy of the papaya seeds, I confirm that the black rounded seeds are good dewormers for chicken,” Piñol said.
“In fact, papaya seeds, along with fresh betel nut, have long been used by old farmers in deworming their fowls,” he added.
He pointed out, however, that papaya seeds may not be safe for human consumption and this should be tested first.
But ultimately, he concluded that “nature always has a lot of surprises to offer”.
