Best Chicken Vet
Chicken Vet Surgery – removing egg yolk from the chicken uterus.

At the poultry vet we find that a contraceptive injection is the most reliable way of stopping egg laying. The chicken contraceptive injection lasts about three months. A problem with chicken contraception is the high cost of the medication, which is about $150.

Chicken vets are unable to permanently sterilize chickens as the surgery is dangerous ( to remove the ovary) and extremely difficult.

At Melbourne chicken vet we perform hundreds of chicken contraception treatments  every year.
