Worming during moult

Recommended Posts

Is it ok to worm hens (using Flubenvet) during the moult? Mine are due for worming but have just begun a particularly heavy moult :roll: and I don't know if it's best to wait until they've refeathered or go ahead and make sure they're worm free.


Any thoughts welcomed!

I'd wait until they've finnished as moulting puts a lot of stress on them and it takes out a lot of body condition I'd leave it foer a month 6 weeks after they've finnished to let the build themselves up again

also if you haven't got any wormer then at the moment you probably won't get any as the company that makes it has all but run out of UK stock
