    I’ve done some searching on BYC and can’t find much of anything on Flubenvet infused layers pellets. My hens have visible worms in their poo and I would like to know if the layers pellets are effective. If not, what product should I use? Thank you for any advice.

    Yes, provided your chickens will eat them.
    Some chickens are particularly sensitive to changes in feed.
    I find it easier to dose the individual chicken. I know then that the chicken has consumed the correct amount of the drug to combat the problem.
    If you have 100 chickens this isn't so realistic. I keep between 20 and 30, but them I only treat for worms when I know they have them.

    It says on the bag to only feed the pellets, no treats and no other pellet types. I’d probably stop the free ranging until the bag is empty too. Thanks for the help!

    Sounds sensible. If you wouldn't mind, could you take a picture of the product bag showing the instructions? It's very helpful for when others post on this topic.
