Heygates Layers Pellets + Flubenvet: 5kg



Heygates Layers Pellets + Flubenvet 5kg

Heygates Country Layers Pellets + Flubenvet have a shorter shelf life of a maximum of 2 months compared to the maximum 3 months shelf life of other Heygates products. This is due to the fact they contain Flubenvet and the product licence of the drug restricts us to a maximum 2 months shelf life.

A similar ration to the Specialist Layers Pellets with Flubenvet wormer added. Flubenvet will control parasitic worms in poultry and should be used for one week so the 20kg pack will treat about 20 birds.Many animals suffer from worms from time to time and chickens, turkeys and geese are no exception. Birds that are kept outdoors and have contact with garden soil or indoors on sawdust, straw or other litter materials can pick up parasitic worms.Parasitic worms can live in the guts and respiratory tracts of chickens and other birds. There are many different types including roundworms, hairworms and gapeworms. The worms all produce eggs which the bird excretes in its droppings. The worm eggs are not immediately infectious - they first have to develop so that a larval immature worm can hatch from the egg when conditions are right. The worm egg could be eaten by a bird, or the egg could hatch and the larval worm could be eaten. In some cases another species such as an earthworm will eat the egg and when the earthworm is eaten the larval parasitic worm will be released inside the bird. Once infection is established it continues as each female worm lays thousands of eggs each day which then contaminate the environment in a constantly repeating cycle. Worm eggs on the ground can remain infectious for years and can resist disinfectants.Chickens with worms may lay fewer, smaller eggs with poor shell colour and strength and pale yolks. Untreated infections may cause weight loss, dishevelled appearance and death.To worm your poultry feed Heygates layers pellets with Flubenvet® as the only feed your chickens eat for 7 consecutive days.

Eggs may be presented for human consumption during treatment when used as directed, but birds should not be slaughtered for human consumption until 7 days after the end of treatment.

Worming - the best policy

WORM before putting chickens out to pasture.

WORM all new birds.

WORM every 3 months - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

WORM more frequently as recommended by a vet or animal health advisor if a worm problem is suspected.Where can worm eggs and Larvae be found?On contaminated soil or bedding material.Inside earthworms, insects and wild birds (intermediate hosts).Stuck to footwear, equipment and even cats and dogs.

PreventionIt is almost impossible to completely prevent parasitic worms but there are certain good practices that can help:

Always feed from feeders rather than direct on the ground.If possible, always move your poultry to clean grass on a regular basis.Avoid muddy areas. Put down pea shingle in strategic areas to clean feet and allow droppings to dry.Keep grass short to expose worm eggs to sunlight which destroys them.
