Parasite Test - Fecal Egg Count (FEC)
Faecal Egg Count
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.
How it works.
Once you have purchased a FEC from our site, you will be send a form. This will need to be printed and filled in. A sample of fresh droppings will also need to be collected and placed in a double zip lock bag. You will then mail the form and the sample to the address given. Results will be sent to us to interpret and then forwarded on to you with a plan if needed.
Note: The sample can either be collected from one individual bird or a collection from a flock of birds.
