    I saw this product in the Practical Poultry so I checked online (www.verm-x.com)
    It is an herbal wormer that comes in 2 forms, liquid or pellets. And there's no withdrawal time. The website said that the liquid can be used to moisten bread...sounds like the perfect way to trick my birds.

    I've tried other herbal stuff and my chickens HATED it. I made these cute little dosage balls for them and passed them out like Halloween candy and they acted all excited. Then they spit it out! I gathered the stuff back up and rolled it in sugar. Again, same response.

    Anyway, verm-x doesn't have US distributors yet. Before I pay international shipping, I'd like to know if anyone has used this and what were their opinions.

    Try emailing V Chic Chick, maybe she knows something about or someone who has used this product

    or you could try checking out her website....

    I've found a good way to give anything to a chicken is to mix it into some plain yogurt with active cultures. Mine prefer it with crushed garlic. I'm not a fan of the bread ball thing.

    Thanks, I emailed her.

    They have herbal wormers for dogs, cats, horses, rabbits--so this might be of interest to people with other pets and livestock.
