Worms - betadrench

Postby charlini » Sat Mar 19, 2016 9:02 pm

Just to add an opinion on worms. I gave my hens betadrench which is an organic formua and has no egg withholding period. I had my hen's poo analysed 2-3 weeks later and there was no evidence of worms. Unfortunately I didn't get their poo analysed before using the betadrench so they may never had worms before drinking the drench. It's easy to administer in their water but expensive.

That's good to know that there is an alternative worm treatment around. It's just a pity that you had the poos checked after treatment but not before so you didn't even know whether treatment was necessary.

I've kept chooks for 25 years now and have never seen a worm - I don't think worms are as much of a problem as some people fear.
