Do you inject the ivermectin or go by water? I've never done it by water, so I don't know what the dose would be.

Peachicks will need to be wormed more that the adults and also need more meds. I learn about worming and general care for peachicks from the best breeder in the US Brad Legg.I worm my peachicks one a month if the ground is wet from rains I worm them ever three weeks I use safe-guard 4 to 5cc per gal of water. I also treat them for blackhead with metronidazole I buy the 500mg tablets I put 3 per gal. of water once a week. I know some on here will say they never had problem with blackhead and I have never had blackhead and I told Brad this and he said you never know till it to late and start having birds dying so that when I started treating them. As far as rotating wormers I use to till a few years ago we had a speaker at the UPA convention on bird health and this was brought up he said not to rotate wormers because the birds could get immune to both wormer and not work he said use one till it stop working and then switch you can tell by taking feces samples. When useing Ivemec 1/2 cc is enought on a adult bird no need to repeat in ten day it stay in the bird system around 30 days it need to be injected or put on the skin it oil base and will not mix with water. This is the way I do my peachicks and the way Brad raises his and he hatches 1000's of peachicks a year so who know more about peafowl than Brad.

Thanks,

We use the same Safe Guard for Goats and Ivomec Plus injectable.  First round Safe Guard then 1 month later Ivomec.

I agree. Brad should know what he's talking about since he raises 1000's of peachicks every year, he has been doing this for 30 yrs. Just remember that some of the state that get more rain may need to worm more then 4 times a year.

We administer the ivomec .25 mL under each wing.

Some people also do not put chicks on the ground until 6 months to a year. We don't put them on the ground until 5 months.  They are housed separate. Then put on fresh sand.
We don't worm our peachicks as often as some others obviously but this works well for us.

Everyone is going to eventually have their own system which works for them

In the beginning we had peafowl with cecal, capillary worms, blackhead, coccidiosis. We were beginners. We bought infected birds. And it came a step away from us getting out of peafowl altogether before we really started. Bad, bad experience.

And at that time there was no such thing as forums to turn to. We didn't have anyone to turn to for help.  My vet I know well we used to work together so we had a good relationship I could turn to him for some help. Dr. Tom Bryan from Purdue diagnostic lab was great too. Several visits, phone calls. He was a big help.

Prevention is always the best policy,  but sometimes it takes a lot more than that.

Not particularly. It can help clear up some of the carriers of worms, and it's possible it kills some of them, but I wouldn't personally trust my birds to just DE.

We don't Ivomec sick birds it's to strong and could kill them, we Ivomec young peachicks before they go on the ground at the age of 5 to 6 months old 1/2cc Ivomec Plus injectable at the base of the neck just under the skin the 1 month later we put Safe Guard for Goats in their water.

I use the ivomec pour on(brown box for cattle), give 1 cc per adult on the skin  of the back , between were wing connect, 1/2 cc would be all they need , but some goes to the feather,not on the skin.....other is the safe guard for goats in their water.

I put peachicks on the ground at 3 month, worm few days later.  also keep on medicated starter for a few weeks after being put on the ground.
