I always worm the girls in March and September. Now that we are between broodies it’s a good time to do it.
I like to add the flubenvet powder to mash as all the girls love mash and it is an easy way to get them all to have a share.
On the first day I put it in one large dish. The big girls had the first go and the little girls couldn’t easily get a position around the dish. I then remembered that I usually put it in several small dishes.
As the flock is smaller than it’s been in the past I decided that two larger dishes would work. I spooned half the mixture into a second dish and this worked fine.
I have now been dividing it into two dishes each day since then and it has worked well with all the girls getting a share and both dishes empty by the afternoons.
This needs to be done for seven consecutive days. I took some photos on the first day.
I think the girls actually enjoy the worming process. They look on daily dishes of mash as a treat and it makes the process so easy.
