    Sorry Rancher, I've never used any of them. I use a cattle/sheep wormer off label for my chickens.

    Hi Rancher HIcks,

    I use Verm-X on my ex-bats, its a brilliant product keeping them worm free [​IMG] I think they have a link on their website to the US distributor.

    Quote:I take it your from the UK? ex-bats? I buy the UK Practical Poultry every month. Worth every penny. Thank for the advice I just can't see tossing egg out.

    Yes I'm based in the UK, Verm-X is popular over here. My ex-bats are ex-battery hens which were kept in tiny wire cages for egg production but now enjoy life roaming around my garden. I like to keep their management as natural as possible.

    Hi ya Chuck,
    I understand the UE has banned battery cages in 2012. Did you know California over here has a law to ban them in 2015? We've recently had an outbreak of salmonella and the publicity it's generating may, I hope , make the ban bigger nationwide.
