The leaflet provides an overview of the most important endoparasite which affect chickens, ways to avoid outbreaks, and how to diagnose, and safely treat your animals for endoparasites while preventing the creation of resistance. Regulations according to BioSuisse for deworming treatments are also provided. This short leaflet is aimed at Swiss organic farmers and farm advisors but is also relevant across Europe.

Summary translation

Das Merkblatt erläutert, wie der Einsatz synthetischer Entwurmungsmittel in der Legehennenhaltung gesenkt und die Resistenzbildung bei den Parasiten vermieden werden kann.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Safely control endoparasites in your laying hens.
What problem does the tool address?:The risk of endoparasites is higher in free-range chickens and synthetic deworming agents are used to combat this problem. However, when used too often worms can form resistance, residues in the eggs increase and there is a negative impact on the soil and water health.
What solution does the tool offer?:The leaflet explains how to reduce the use of synthetic deworming treatments in laying hen husbandry and how to prevent the development of parasite resistance.
Type of Practice Tool:Leaflets & guidelines
