Hi does anyone know whats happening with Flubenvet (the 60g box for small poultry keepers)? Been trying to get it from my usual country store suppliers since April - no luck so I looked on line and its the same there - all out of stock

Apparently there is a problem with the manufacturer, the date it will be available keeps being put back. I am not sure when it will be available. I am using pellets with  Vermex added at the moment as a continuous feed. The hens are looking much better on this feed, not sure if it is because they had worms or they just like it better so are eating more!

Ive been told end of September. They are still advertising the 1% in Practical Poultry , which is a bit naughty I think.
Im using Marriages layers pellets with Flube in it
Is it time to retire yet?

Heard someone saw some 1% at their local vets and decided to buy it -until they were told £34 and the stuff was out of date as well.

Seems Elanco aren't really sure when they will make some more. Panacur, which isn't licensed for poultry, can be used I am told. But in the meantime we've bought Verm-X, on the basis that it is better than nothing.

I've also used the Marriages pellets. I agree with Chris that Vermex is also a good interim solution. You could also try adding a few herbs and spices to their feed. I add a pinch of garlic granules. Doesn't affect eggs in that amount.
