    Going to worm my girls for the next seven days through pre-mixed flubenvet pellets...my girls are normally free range all day in the back garden eating grass and different things, so should I keep them in their coop & run for the next week so that they ONLY eat there worming pellets?

    I'm starting mine on flubenvet tomorrow too! And same question haha!

    Also, as I've just discovered my scales are highly inaccurate, how much would you say is 2kg of pellets? A cup? A bucket? Lol!

    I think I'm just going to keep them in their run for the next 7 days so they don't eat anything but their pellets. I don't know how to measure kg's without a scale, the instructions on my feed don't say anything about measuring out feed so I'm gonna just put it in their feeder like normal.

    I'm just wondering how much 2kg of pellets is as I need to add 6g flubenvet to it

    Done it. I only have 5 chucks so I've added 3g flubenvet to 1kg food. Ill refill as necessary
