Worming a mixed flock? Need some input... - Page 5

post #41 of 48

My vet suggested maybe a group of us might want to buy a liter of the Aquasol and split it up?  This is a very concentrated version.  I won't need very much and wouldn't use the whole thing in a year (or three) for my small flock...

I purchase Safeguard for goats suspension10% to worm all my birds here, it cost 425 dollars( 3785ML) in a  gallon  at Jeffers ........a huge savings compared to the 125 ML bottles for 20 dollars at tractor supply 

“You can’t really begin to appreciate life until it has knocked you down a few times. You can’t really begin to appreciate love until your heart has been broken. And you can’t really begin to appreciate happiness until you’ve known sadness. Once you’ve walked through the valley, the view from the mountaintop is breathtaking"

Jeffers also has Valbazen suspension 500ml for $43.00 and its water soluble.

$300?! Holy moly. :th

That is what I did, got the gallon from my vet for just a little over $400.  Good through 2018, even at that I may not use it all up in time as now I need less because of doing the home fecal exams.

This just makes me feel better about being a vet because I'll be able to buy it directly if it doesn't go out to the public. How many breeding peafowl do you have? Originally I hoped to own 126 breeding peafowl but it will be less because after doing more research and talking to others about breeding Green peafowl is hens don't get a long and it's best to keep Greens in pairs so I will probably have 123 breeding peafowl in the future.

About 40 breeding age peafowl in seven pens, then the project birds, around 30, and the growout pen with another 25 or less that are waiting for new homes.  We also have a **** load of chickens and guineas to worm as well.

 

 What is easy to overlook is the amount of pen space, brooder coops, and equipment needed for a large breeding operation.

I "get" the massive investment in pens & equipment...  I can figure that stuff out on paper.  But I always UNDER estimate the amount of time and manpower.  Stuff always happens so much quicker when I wave my mental magic wand and imagine it done. :yesss:

 

Actual build in in real life seems to take longer :gig

 

Right now, I'm just trying to picture how much time per day it would take to care for either set of these birds -- it's making my head hurt just thinking about it.  Much as I love them, I'm definitely daunted at the prospect of caring for that many.  My hat's off to both of you. :bow
