Should I be giving my chickens preventative worm treatment?

Advice on worming should always be sought from a vet or suitably qualified person (SQP) at the point of purchase.  Worms cannot be prevented, however, Nettex Ground and Bedding Sanitising Powder – a highly absorbent sanitising powder for use in poultry housing – coops and runs – can be used to clear the ground of worm eggs and bacteria, and you can check whether your flock need worming by undertaking worm egg counts regularly and if needed, worm your flock using a licensed wormer or a medicated wormer premix.
