Internal Parasites - worms. 

Advice on worming should be sought from a vet or suitably qualified person (SQP). However, as a guide you should undertake a worm egg count regularly, and if needed worm your flock using a licensed wormer or a medicated wormer premix. Worming is stressful for your birds and using Nettex Herbal Gut Conditioner at this time, helps to support healthy gut flora and the digestive system.  

Intestinal worm eggs are always present in the environment, therefore it is important to treat the ground as well as the birds to minimise reinfestation. Once you have treated your birds, clear the run of litter and sprinkle the base with Nettex Ground Sanitising Powder. This disinfectant will help clear the ground of worm eggs and bacteria before you lay clean litter, and helps maintain a low risk environment for poultry. Ground Sanitising Powder also helps absorb moisture and odour. For best poultry hygiene practice, drinkers and feeders should be cleaned weekly with Nettex Poultry 4 in 1 this helps minimise the risk of poultry bacteria and viruses.
