You might want to get a bunch of fresh chicken poop, place in baggie, stir well and have the vet do a fecal on it. If no capillary eggs are found, probably okay to worm just the one day and repeat in 10.

Though I like Becky, she got this wrong. DE is NOT an internal wormer. It's great for many things but not for that purpose.

Hi Kathy,

I have found gray worms in the chicken coop.  What is the egg withholding time for "You can use any 10% liquid or paste Safeguard. The dose I use is 0.23ml per pound for five days... that dose will treat roundworms, cecal worms, gapeworms, capillary worms and possibly some species of tape worms."

 

I'm using safeguard for goats.

 

Thank you! Heather

Most people say 14 days from last dose.

Purchase safeguard liquid goat wormer. Use a syringe without a needle to administer it. Dosage is 1/2cc for standard size chickens orally undiluted for 5 days straight.

Hello Dawg,

 

This is no longer preventive. I've found worms in the chicken poop. Do you recommend the same dosage and what is the egg withholding time?

 

Thank you,

Heather
