How To Stop My Chicken Laying Eggs

Hormone Implants In Chickens?!?

At Melbourne chicken vet we recommend contraception in chickens, to stop chickens from ovulating and laying eggs  for a number of conditions including:

  • Chicken vet reproductive tract disease
  • Oviductal prolapse in chickens
  • Cloacal prolapse in laying hens
  • Uterine infections
  • Soft shelled eggs
  • Birds that need a reproductive break
  • Egg yolk related peritonitis
  • To give rescue chickens a break from laying
  • After surgery

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.
