I definitely spend more on medication for my chickens than I do for my cat or dog. They need medication for external and internal parasites every two months, plus they need a tonic in the drinking water when they are moulting or otherwise under the weather, plus they need Baytril when they develop infections or respiratory problems. Going to the vet stresses them out, and the vets will generally inject them rather than giving you the medicine on a preventative basis. I prefer to buy the things they need so that I can have them in the cupboard when needed. I got this Ivermectin from Wells Poultry and it was delivered fast and was genuine. It's a spot on, so easy to apply as long as your chickens don't mind you handling them.
We had new chickens that ripped bits out of each other. Being all in the same hen house/run we had to find the tar and dye to cover the wounds up ... and to get them quickly. Ideally we would have bought locally but nothing showed up online so we bought from Wells Poultry and thankfully, got them very quickly.
Ordered some garlic and mint granules along with Diatom powder and puffer. Chickens can't get enough of the garlic - walking into their coop is like passing an authentic Pizzaria (if you ignore the subtle whiff of chicken poo)....
The Diatom is fab and seems to keep those horrible mites away and the puffer is extremely useful for getting the powder into awkward corners.
Very pleased with Wells Poultry!
Smite 5 Litre Red Mite Control, dispatched and received as advertised, and well packed. Used as described and gave the hen house and nest box a thorough spraying, after first removing the roosting perch, which was dunked in the 6% solution. The following day, when dry, visible mite movement was reduced to almost nil. Will be using this from now on in the regular hen house cleaning regime.
excellent service with exceptionally speedy delivery even to the remotest island of Northern Ireland...thankyou ...and a brilliant range of products extremely difficult to source locally for the backgarden "pet " keeper
My chicken was pale and lethargic, gave her nutridrops for five days, quite a job doing it on your own, but she is much better now thanks
I ordered some Poultry Shield and Diatom for an outbreak of red mite in my coops. As it required urgent attention, I paid extra for the fastest possible delivery. I placed my order on 13th August, but it was not dispatched until 15th and thus arrived on the 16th. I realize that there may have been a problem with availability of stock, but in that case an email explaining that fact would have been welcome. I certainly regret having paid for the extra postage, although the product was exactly as described and very well packaged.
Second time of ordering and yet again, the speed of delivery was excellent. I bought from this web site originally because there is so much info on there, that you can't really go wrong when choosing the right product for your needs. Will definitely use them again
I placed my order on their very easy to navigate website and received the goods, extremely well packed, within 2 days. Very impressive service all round and have just confidently placed another order for a different product.
Had previous satisfactory purchase, but the external light sensor stopped working so purchased another one and asked that I be refunded cost. While request was acknowledged haven't heard anything since.
Ordered product day before bank holiday weekend it arrived one week later. I thought that was too long and was frustrated at the delay watching my chickens suffer while I awaited the treatment.
Bought 5 litres of concentrate Smite Poultry red mite control for chicken coops , and a bottle of Smite powder for red mites. Watered the concentrate down as instructed and sprayed all bedding etc inside coop, cleared it out then sprayed the empty coop and scrubbed. Waited for it to all dry and then covered in powder. Next day found a few red mites in nest box which I squished under my thumb. Day after found some grey mites (red ones that had not fed), squished these. Keep putting the powder down and today all seems clear. Think the mites were on the hens when I cleaned the coop and sneaked in later. I have dusted hens in Smite powder. Hens seem a lot happier and combs lovely red, egg production never dropped much whilst infested, but hens pecked their feathers out. Never had red mites in 6 years of hen keeping - your really know when you get them though. Will keep using the Smite as a routine prevention, especially as hens not bothered by the product.
So simple to order, really good prices and fantastic delivery. There was no waiting around for days for dispatch, it was here the next day. Great quality yet really good prices. Would recommend highly and have already placed another order!
Needed goods urgently and Wells delivered promptly and efficiently.
This is the third time I have ordered from Wells and once again the ordering process was easy, the items arrived ahead of the expected delivery date and the actual products are top notch, excellent quality and exactly as described on the website.
My shipment was incomplete with a bag of mixed grit missing but the packing note said this was 'to follow' so I am sure my grit will arrive in due course, as soon as they have it available, if not i would be happy with a suitable alternative. I will be sure to shop with Wells again, without doubt.
Delivery was very good on my roll down egg laying boxes but unfortunately after several tries by us and the chickens we cannot get them to work and the chicken is still eating her own eggs but not laying so many, they have in fact decided to lay everywhere but in them.
