Safeguard goat wormer popped up when I searched valbazen on Amazon but it doesn't really have an ingredients list. Does safeguard goat wormer have valbazen in it or at the very least does it treat tape worms in chickens?
Safeguard = fenbendazole 100 mg/ml
Valbazen = albendazole 113.6 mg/ml
If you want to be treat tapes, the best way is with praziquantel, which you will find in tubes of Equimax horse paste. Dose is 0.03 ml per pound orally, so a five pound chicken would get 0.16 ml.
Least expensive way would be to buy a tube of EquiMax.
