Just some thoughts on other angles for finding sheep....:)

:hugs I LOVE sheep...such nice animals...and my favorite is the hair sheep...

Look at shanks size.

Cockerels will have shanks 2X the size of a pullet

 

Also males fledge slower...usually their tail is last to fledge....the pullet will fledge fast, wings, BACK, tail, everything...fast, within week or 2 of hatch.

Cockerels will also redden in wattles and comb earlier than the pullets.

Even when the pullet is older, her comb will be much smaller than the cockerel.

The last thing you do is look for emerging hackle on the BACK/Saddle area and the neck cape........only cocks will have this feathering.

The feathers will be long & pointed...and have quite a sheen to them.

So here is a pic of a Black Java Cock....so you can see his long pointed hackle feathers on neck "cape" and Saddle (back)

hen:

hahaha.so cute !!...........

So way in the back is the Cock...but pay attention to the hen's neck feathers, no hackle, and no saddle hackle either.

 

 

 

Somewhere I have some of the Buckeyes....So here is my Star Buckeye Cock...notice his hackle, he was so awesome !!

Fenbendazole is available in liquid (add to water) for goats and as a tube paste equine dewormer. This seems specific to worms while being broad-spectrum.

 

There is also liquid "Wazine" that is specific to adult roundworms.

I have used Wazine, it does nothing...

No one should use antibiotics willy nilly, EVER..especially in the case of CRD's or other flock illness...if your entire flock is sick, it needs to be culled, there is some bad bad stuff going on there, and I have not seen flock-wide illness in years...

More than likely, the reason why is because we stopped using flock-wide antibiotics.

 

I think you were thinking "anti-helminthics".not antibiotic.

 

And your ideas are just.
