    I have 4 peafowl, that to my knowledge have never been wormed. I checked out the sticky but don't see anything on there about what wormer to use. Or maybe I'm blind. lol I have just started worming my chickens for their winter worming, but skipped the peas, since I was not sure what to use. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    We use Safe Guard for Goats 3cc to 4cc to 1 gallon of water, use for 3 days replacing water daily.

    We also give them shots of Ivomec Plus injectable 1/2 to 1cc depending on size of bird.

    Like I have said before I am no EXPERT but this works for us.

    You can also use the Ivermectin pour-on for cattle, as I learned from here. You put 1 cc under the wing for peafowl. But also use Safeguard as Ivermectin only works for certain worms.
