    Hi I have three newish rescued chickens and I think they have words. I have flubenvet poultry wormer and it says 6g per 2kg feed over seven days. I don't know how much food they eat in a week, and is it 6g per bird or per flock? Thanks.

    Mix 6 g with 2 kg of feed and utilize over a one week period. With your smaller flock, I might suggest 3 g of Flubenvet in 1 kg of feed.

    I give my two girls their flubenvet by slicing a grape in half and dipping the wet side into the powder. Half a grape like that each for 7 days, and they're done. Much easier!
