Once every three months we recommend that you worm your chickens. We have made available Levamisole Poultry Wormer in the handy size of 2.5 grams for $6 (including postage).
The night before you want to worm your chickens, you need to take away all of their water sources about an hour before sunset so the next morning they wake up thirsty.
The following morning you mix the 2.5g of levamisole into 4 L water. You then need to give this to your chickens to drink as their only water for the next 6 hours. This is more than enough for 20 chickens. After 6 hours or after they have consumed all of the mixture, you then need to clean out the water container and give them fresh water. They do not need to consumer all of the mixture.
We do not recommend worming on a day where the temperature is excessive or raining.
The great thing about Levamisole is that it has no egg withholding period and is made for poultry. If you use other products check to see if they are approved for chickens or if there is an egg withholding period for the product.

Trust me, the hens can share. You don’t need a box for each chicken. And even if you did, you would find that they would probably all use the same box anyway, We find that one nesting box for every six hens works great. These Australorps are proving that in a single nesting box you can fit three hens at once!
We are all stocked and ready to go for spring. Let us know if you would like to come by for supplies. We accept cash, credit card or EFT. Remember to dust and worm your chickens once a quarter to keep them in prime condition. Contact us for our latest price list.
