    Sorry but I've never heard of this wormer before and I can't answer this.

    I just emailed Hoegger Customer Service and they said I can use it on chickens.

    It works good on my goats, hope it works good on the chickens too.

    That's what I'd say too, if I were trying to sell you some.

    If "herbal" worked, we wouldn't need chemical companies​

    I cannot believe a thing you say… you just said that you will lie if it is what you want.

    Not to be offensive, just sayin’.

    I believe herbal remedies are what God made for us, but to each his own. [​IMG]

    Sounds like a sales pitch to me. Why not spend $10.95 on something that we know FOR SURE that DOES work as a wormer in chickens...such as Safeguard equine paste. Would you use a herbal wormer on your dog or cat if they had worms...yourself? Check with your vet or doctor and ask them and listen to what they have to say.

    Quote:The cost is prohibitive to use that stuff, not to mention time consuming, and administration. Valbazen (albendazole) takes care of all the worms/flukes mentioned including gizzard worms, eyeworm, and gapeworm which arnt mentioned by any of the herbals. Kill ratios are higher as well using albendazole.

    I wouldn't be a "liar" if you asked "Can I use this on chickens?", and I said "Yes", since you can use it.
    That doesn't mean it's going to work, but only that it won't hurt them

    Did you ask them if they had proof it kills worms in chickens?

    I believe herbal remedies are what God made for us

    God made scientists too, and gave us knowledge​
