What can chicks be wormed?

Post by elmdene » Wed Sep 14, 2011 6:07 pm

I want to worm my chickens (last done in April) but have 7-8 week old chicks in with them as well. Will Flubenvet be harmful to them at that age, and if so, how old should they be before worming?

Hello,

We would recommend that you begin worming your chicks from the age of 16 weeks. It is not necessary to worm chickens before this time however will not harm them if you choose to.

We recommend Flubenvet as it is a medicated wormer and the eggs can be eaten during and after treatment.

Best Wishes,
