Hi,

I have been worming my peafowl every 2 weeks with Panacur. Does this mean that I should not consume any of the eggs they produce? Also, does this have any other effects on their reproduction?

Thanks!

Hello, everyone here knows that i am new to peafowl - an absolute novice compared to all the experts here - who will advise you BETTER than me.
However, if it may help you, I will tell you what my UK vet says about panacur. I have a regular vbet and a specialist avian vet, they both agree to prescribe my FREERANGE birds 1ml (liquid medication) of 10% panacur per kilo of bird. I don't catch them and weigh them Laughing so he guesses 5ml per adult bird. This is done 4 times a year - but he thinks i am overdoing it a bit and suggests two times a year would be enough. Administration is directly down their throat or in with food they are going to eat immediatlely (ie, this dose needs to be given all in one go - not in water or over a few days). I then try and give them another 5ml dose 10 days later - but my vet says this is not strictly necessary but won't harm them.
I also worm my chickens with panacur (3ml per bird) and my vet says not to eat the eggs for 7 days afterwards - i don't know the reason for this and forgot last month and i am still okay Laughing
I have read somewhere - maybe on this forum - that wormer kills the sperm and so the males are not fertile for a while after administration Question - better get better advise on that one.
I know from my old post WORMING that this dose of Panacur is quite large compared to the dose that is routinely given in the USA.
People will be along who can advise you better - but hope this is of some help for discussion.
