Verm-x?

Postby KiwiSue49 » Tue Mar 26, 2019 12:44 pm

Afternoon,

For the future I am looking into using a product called Verm-x for poultry. Has
anyone imported this item and tried it out with their chickens?

I am part way through a once a week for three weeks, using Ivermec Super
applying it on the back of the two chickens I have that free-range.
Good results so far, as one had quite a lot of lice, and one passed a worm.

Thank you for any help.

Cheers,
Sue

I've never even heard of Verm-x.

I'm familiar with Flubenol (no egg withholding period) and Aviverm.

And - of course - pumpkin seeds. The latter is what I use as a preventative and so far, fingers crossed, I've never had to use Aviverm or Flubenol.

I use the green pumpkin seeds from the bulk foods department and coarseley chop them. Add them to their mash 2 to 3 times per year.
