Worm Hen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi about a month ago my hen was acting sick, not eating for a week, looked weak....
Took away the pellets i was feeding it and it got better by weeks end.
This happened months earlier too and in same fashion.
Sudden onset.
Day before it was fine and then next day weak and no appetite.
I will never feed it commercial feed again
Giving it wheat, gmo free corn meal with vitaminpowder mixed inas ut is currently shedding feathers....

I want to de worm it with peparazine as ithas never been wormed and uts near 3 yrs old.

Is it safe to worm the hen now when its molting...?

Is piperazine good enough?

If you think they have worms and don't know what kind, either get a broad spectrum dewormer like Levamisole (available on line) or Panacur (Safeguard). Some people use Safeguard for goats which is available at the feed store, but I don't know how much to give of that. Ask the feed store what broad spectrum dewormers they have. There's also Strike 3 which is a feed supplement, but I've found it's more of a preventative than it is actually a treatment for severe worm infestation.
