Worms?

What wormers do poultry keepers here use? Which do you find the most effective?

Flubenvet is usually considered the best and is licensed for poultry. Sadly it's got very hard to get. Last time we had to order it from viovet in England. This might be even harder now with brexit.

I have just replied to another post about Flubenvet.So I will paste in the same answer
The active ingredient in flubenvet is flubendazole. Fenbendazole and Mebendazole are near identical to flubendazole and are all the same family, All three do the same thing in birds apparently. One seems to be as safe as the other. Any wormer with one of these three ingredients should be perfectly fine. Just check with a vet first and make sure your dosage is correct.
here is a link for more details on them

Or the generic Flubendazole

Both ship from within Ireland so no surprise extras to pay after Brexit
