Pretty sure my parents are creating a chickaholic 12 step program for me behind my back.

Okay thank you. Should i disinfect the syringe after each bird? I have about 35 in one pen. I don't know if I can get all of them but I'm definitely going to treat the ones heavily affect by the tape worm. Gosh I hope this works. I've been so horribly confused by all this worming business, no answer is the same and all the information seems to be different or have a different take on it. :th

There is no easy way to worm a large flock. What info are you conflicted by? Tape worms are hard to treat. I think your best bet would be to get a two tubes of EquiMax and treat each bird once, then again in ten days. Deworming 35 birds with Safeguard for goats isn't gonna be cheap or easy.

 

35 birds at 5 pounds each for one day looks like this:

35 x 5 / 2.2 x 50 / 100 = 40 ml per day.

 

You *might* be able to get away with half that.

35 x 5 / 2.2 x 25 / 100 = 20 ml per day.

 

What info is confusing you? Let me know and I'll try my best to explain what it means.

Just fenbenazole I found so much conflicting info, "works great on tapeworms, doesn't work on tapeworms," just stuff like that and I couldn't find a lot of info on how to treat tapeworms either. amount on treatments always differed a lot to. For someone who doesn't like to act before getting all the facts I found this incredibly frustrating. I delayed almost two weeks upon discovering a couple tapewormy poos before finally buying safeguard and now it looks like I'm buying something else. :he

Some text books and studies say Safeguard (fenbendazole) or Valbazen (albendazole) will treat the common chicken tapeworm, but many people have reported that it doesn't. If you're sure it's tapes, best to use praziquantel.

One treatment, that's all it took.
