I worm the girls, the recommended, twice a year. I do this in March and September. I find the easiest way is to add the flubenvet powder to mash. All my girls have always loved mash so it’s an easy way to make sure they all get some.
I have given mash a couple of times over the last week to establish if the five amigos like mash too. It turned out that they too love mash so I felt ready to start today for seven consecutive days.
I am mixing fifty fifty growers and layers pellets as the best way to accommodate both the younger girls and the laying girls. I made the mash in four dishes, two smaller dishes for the patio area and two larger dishes for the food station half way down the run and at the bottom of the run.
This is because the three bigger girls mostly use the patio area but the larger group of smaller girls prefer the dishes in the run.
I then sprinkle one measuring spoon (which comes with the flubenvet) over the mash. It’s not an exact science but as my girls are so small they only need a little bit and as long as all the girls get some I am happy with that.
I felt really pleased to have seen all twelve girls have some mash and am happy that this will ensure that they all get some worming powder.
By the afternoon all the dishes were empty so it was a successful first day.
