Flubendazole is the only licensed, proven effective wormer for poultry.
It is mixed with usual feed for a 7 day period and is recommended to to be used 3-4 times annually.
As a rough guide a 60g tub of Flubenet/Flubendazole is enough to medicate 20kg's/ worm 20 chickens. Therefore if you have 5 hens, 1 tub will be enough to worm them 4 times so will be enough to treat you hens for a whole year.
You may receive either Flubenvet or Flubendazole - both are identical products, differently packaged.

Presentation 1 % (w/w) white to slightly yellow, medicated premixture containing 10 mg/g flubendazole in a 60 g tub with a 6 g scoop.
Uses Domestic Poultry Wormer: Flubenvet 1% Medicated Premixture is effective against gapeworm, large roundworm, caecal worm, hairworm, and gizzard worm in chickens, turkeys, and geese. Activity includes adult worms, larvae and eggs. Dosage and administration Dosing Instructions Medicated feed should be fed for 7 consecutive days. Incorporate the required amount of the product into the daily feed ration. The daily ration should be fed as a “complete ration” during the 7 day treatment period - ie only feed birds with feed which has been medicated with Flubenvet at the inclusion rates below, for chicken and geese the ration will contain 30 ppm flubendazole and for turkeys 20 ppm. Dosage Chickens and Geese - 60 g of product (the whole tub) medicates 20 kg of feed
Use the scoop to measure the correct amount of product to mix into the feed as per above. The dosage is dependent on the amount of feed that each bird consumes over the 7-day treatment period.
Larger birds eat more feed and receive more medication according to their weight.
Mixing advice: The volume of product to be mixed into the feed is small. Mix very well for even distribution. Initially, mix the required volume of Flubenvet into a cup of feed. Mix very well. Add this to a bowl of feed and mix very well. Repeat twice more, every time into a larger volume of food until the total volume of medicated feed has been produced. Mix well.
Treatment frequency: Birds on the ground with known worm infestations are susceptible to re-infestation. In such cases, re-treatment with another 7-day course, after 3 weeks is recommended.
Contra-indications, warnings, etc: Withdrawal periods: Meat - Birds must not be slaughtered for human consumption during treatment. Treated birds may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 7 days from the last treatment; the meat withdrawal time is 7 days.
Eggs - There is no withholding period for chickens producing eggs for human consumption when the product is used at the recommended inclusion rate; the egg withdrawal time is zero days.
Operator warnings: The product is a powder and mixing may generate dust. Prepare the product in a well ventilated place. Do not breathe in dust. If accidental inhalation of dust occurs, move to an outdoor area with fresh air. To avoid accidental inhalation wear a disposable dust mask (that conforms to European Standard EN149). Accidental ingestion by humans should be avoided. Avoid direct skin contact as this may cause irritation and sensitisation. Wear impervious gloves when mixing and handling the product. Wash affected parts if skin contact occurs. If accidental eye contact occurs, immediately rinse thoroughly with water. Disposal Dispose of empty containers in the domestic refuse.
