    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    I should probably do another fecal in 1 or 2 weeks to be sure the cocci is cleared.

    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    Hi Casportpony, "Pyrantel tartrate was more effective then pyrantel pamoate against the adult stage of A galli, and it was somewhat effective against Capillaria when administered at 15–25 mg/kg" Previously I had used Valbazen but wanted to try something different. What other medications do...

    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    We waited one week from the 2nd dosage and ran a stool sample. The Capillaria is gone (yeah!) but now there is 450 EPG (eggs per gram) of Eimeria which is a fancy word for "cocci." These are all 3 or 4 year old birds. Most likely the medicine got rid of the good bacteria in the gut and caused...

    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    As noted before, the amount of Praziquantel in one tablet is the limiting factor. We can go up to 2 mediworm tablets per kg of bodyweight. We are going to administer this amount of dosage today.

    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    One week ago, the stool sample had 100 eggs per gram of Capillaria worms. At that point, we gave the chickens the Mediworm tablets. Today it is 8 days later and a new stool sample comes back with 50 eggs per gram of Capillaria. So their population is cut in half but not eliminated. The...

    Tapeworm and Capillaria

    Note: one tablet of pigeon-sized Mediworm is Composition: . Pyrantel Pamoate 20mg . Praziquantel 5mg Was told: For the Pyrantel pamoate, chickens can safely take 75-100mgs/kg. For the Praziquantel, chickens can have a dose of 2.5mg-10mg/kg. So the limiting factor is Praziquantel as it is...

    Omlet = China

    Hi Howard. Yes Missouri has a lot of chicken history... so does their neighbor Arkansas... where I was born. In Arkansas they trained chickens to play tic-tac-toe, shoot basketball hoops, play baseball, and even start a jukebox and dance. We trained our chickens to find the queen of hearts...

    Omlet = China

    We ended up getting two HDPE plastic A-Frame coops from an American company in Missouri: http://wellkeptchicken.com/35-2/ You know, the kind where when you dial the phone number they pick up on the first try? Yes, real people who do multiple things including making these cool coops on their...

    Omlet = China

    After this post went live the following has occurred almost immediately: 1) Omlet sent me an email request for full payment of $1,368.09 on August 9th for a product they now say they don't have. 2) Voicemail was left from Clare at Omlet still telling me that I never gave them credit card...

    Omlet = China

    If anyone can recommend a coop that: 1) has wheels 2) is plastic, metal, or aluminum 3) has a run with flared bottom to deter digging predators 4) reasonable price I'm all ears, please tell us, because I thought the Omlet Eglu "go UP" was that product. Unfortunately it is a British Unicorn...

    Salmonella and you

    Thanks Ed, This article can be used by anyone no matter where you live because it is a universal look at Salmonella and what it "really" means for us. I've looked for something similar, that really looks at the issue head on, but to my knowledge this is the first example that compiles a...
