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.
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.
