Worm hens three to four times a year
Q When is the best time of year to use Flubenvet? Should I get the feed with it mixed in?
A Victoria Roberts says: Hens should be wormed three to four times a year in order to keep them strong and healthy for egg laying, breeding or moulting. Flubenvet can either be mixed in to pellets for seven days using the 60g tub (put a little vegetable oil on first to stick the powder), or purchased already in-feed. Do not purchase too much of this feed since if it goes out of date it can become toxic or, at the very least, lose most of its nutritional value. Always check the use-by date at purchase. Eggs can still be eaten by their owner while worming, but the Veterinary Medicines Directorate does not allow the sale of eggs while treatment is being undertaken.
