We will identify and count any worm eggs seen in the sample to determine if your bird(s) have worms and whether to worm or not. We are likely to see:
worm count results
- Ascaridia (Chicken Roundworm)
- Eimeria (coccidia)
- Capillaria eggs seen
- Bunostomum (Hookworm)
- Tapeworm eggs seen
- Syngamus trachea (Gapeworm)
If worms are identified then treat your birds with a course of Flubenvet 1% in feed for seven days. A 60g pot will be enough to treat a 20Kg bag of feed which would last 25-30 hens one week.
Test again in 8-12 weeks.
When cleaning your chicken houses use an appropriate disinfectant that is licensed to destroy worm eggs. Try to move your run to fresh ground periodically to prevent a build up of worm eggs on the pasture.
