    Every spring and autumn we use flubenvet medicated food to worm our girls but this is the first year we have used the powder first dose sunday and guess what?
    This mornings poop showed huge mature worms! This is a first (our girls are 1 and 4 years old).
    Now what?
    Apart from cleaning washing the coop again and we use net text ground sanitiser in the run,how can we prevent them picking them up again when they free range in the garden?
    Do we need to retreat in 3weeks?

    Africa - near the equator
    Its not really possible to have worm-free environment - not free ranging at least.

    I usually de-worm if i see evidence of worms (but i understand many are naked to the human eye) or once every 6 months or so.

    If the packaging says re-treat after a certain number of days, I'd suggesting following that advice.

    All the best
