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.
