# Pennsylvania!! Unite!! - Page 5358

I don't see any difference in my chickens' beaks this morning, so I don't believe it is pox.

We were going to take our Littles to the Pittsburgh Zoo today, but it's looking a little too rainy, so we are going to check out the Aviary instead. I'm looking forward to seeing all the birds. ðŸ˜Š

On a side note, none of the roosters are crowing this morning. Not a peep. I've checked them, but I don't know what the deal is.

These are my personal notes about wormer meds, some of this is copied verbatim, so I hope posting this without attribution won't upset whoever wrote it, but I can't remember what thread I copied this from.

- Valbazen
Jeffers price \$43 for 500 ml. Orally is the best way, but I can understand why one might not want to do 100 birds that way. What some peafowl friends of mine do is mix their wormer in a mash, but this requires know approximately how much they weigh and doing a little math.To do it in the food you would need to get the weight of your flock in pounds, divide by 2.2, times 20, divide by 113.6. The answer to that would be the amount of Valbazen to put into the amount of mash that they would eat. Of course this will only be effective if each one eats the same amount. Those that don't won't get the proper amount of wormer. Sample for a flock of 100 1/2 pound chicks 50 Ã· 2.2 x 20 Ã· 113.6 = 4ml To dose individually it's the same thing, weight of bird in pounds, divide by 2.2, times 20, divide by 113.6. The answer to that would be the amount of Valbazen to give orally.

- Safeguard
Jeffers price \$19 for 125 ml. I do Safeguard one day at 0.5ml per 2.2 pounds when I want to treat just roundworms and/or cecal worms and I repeat that dos again in 10 days. If I want to treat capillary worms with Safeguard I give 0.5ml per 2.2 pounds for five days in a row, but *not* again in 10 days. Valbazen will treat all those worms mentioned in one dose at 0.2ml per 2.2 pounds. Repeat in 10 days.

Welcome. I'm in Beaver County as well.

It's going to be one of those days.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

Â

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Do any of you guys have Double-Laced Barnevelders?

Nice to know....thank you dheltzel!Â  Always try to buy local & support local businesses....

"Ray from PA" out in Robesonia has them I think. You could PM him here or look for him on Craigslist, search for "Marans".

What will kill a chicken pluck it's feathers in it's back and then just leave it? I have a photo but that's something I didn't think was appropriate to post
My \$&@%ing neighbors cat got my one Marans chick. I am so ticked off, this is number three in two weeks. I tried to knock on her door, she doesn't even have a doorbell. I'm ready to sit out there with a BB gun now. . Sorry guys, I was really looking forward to having a Maran in my flock even though I got it by mistake. Tonight I am going to try to talk to her again.

Edited to add the BB gun is for her cat, not her.

LOL....well I was hoping it was meant for the cat...I am sorry you lost your little one!Â  And hun, I would sit out on my porch and wait for that **** cat!Â  I have a feral that was hanging out around here....and we took a couple of pot shots at it with a pellet gun...don't think we ever hit it...but it scared the beejezuss out of it!!! (we put a steel garbage can lid up where it usually comes out of the woods and would hit that and it would jump like 3ft in the air and run) and we haven't seen hide nor hair of it since...A BB gun shot in the *** is not really going to hurt it persee, not saying it won't, just usually doesn't....Go for it Anne In The Burbs Oakley!!!! :)
