I use safeguard liquid for goats and put a tablespoon in a gallon of water. I treat for six days but I treat more aggressively than other people do. I do this probably every 3 months and work around mating season. Its my understanding that birds are not fertile for 10 days after safeguard dosing. I have chicks that are 4 and 5 weeks old, have not treated them yet for worms. However, their poop has been checked by my vet and it was clear for parasites, except coccidia. So rechecking poop in another 10 following their six day treatment for coccidia.

They are are medicated chick starter so they never had any symptoms.

My chicks are two months old and have been eating medicated starter. I assume I need to worm them, but am clueless as to what I should get and how often I should use it. Is wormer available at the feed store or do I have to consult a vet? I've seen various timings listed as to how often to worm. I don't suppose there is a consensus Smile

Anyway, TIA
Z.

I start worming my chicks around 7 to 8 weeks old I use safe-guard for goats I put 3 to 4 cc per gal of water for 3 to 4 days. If it a dry summer I wormed ever month if we get alot of rain I treat them for worm ever 3 weeks. I also treat all my peachicks with metronidazole for blackhead ever week. Breeders need to be wormed 2 to 3 times a year I use 5 cc of safe-guard for 3 to 4 days. Safe-guard will not hurt the fertility during laying season.

Just to be clear: you use a product intended for goats to worm peas? Do you get it from a vet or is it available elsewhere?

Sorry to sound stupid, but I guess that's what I am.

There is no wormer on the market that is for peafowl. Safe-guard is one of the wormers that is used for peafowl. You can get it at most feed stores or at tractor supply.

Thanks for the reply. Now I get it and I'll be sure to find some Safe-guard soon.
