How old are they? I'd worm them and crovect them at the same time

Depends if they need worming ? Have they been wormed this year? You could always do a FEC and find out if it's really needed. I would crovect for flystrike though (or clik if long term keep lambs) if not done already this year.

Me, too.  White drench for nematodirus at this time of year, or you could get a sample for a FEC and get the results first. 

 

Advice lamb, not quite right.
