Faecal Egg Count (New Zealand only)


Regular fecal egg counts (FEC) are a great way to monitor your birds for signs of parasite infection. Only when the test indicates worms are present will you then need to step in with a treatment. Checking your flock in this way will help to give you peace of mind that your birds aren’t carrying unwelcome parasites that will impact their health, while reducing the need for regular worming doses.
