    What is a good dewormer for Seramas (or Bantams in general)?
    I just got an email from the lady who just had 2 of my babies shipped in an she informed me they both had mites.. I checked all of my birds from the brooder the 2 babies came from an no one else had mites but the box I used was a box I had when I got another bird shipped in last week.. I checked that bird an it did have mites (thank goodness for quarintine).. So now im totally stripping everything down tomorrow and dusting and giving EVERYONE a bath and I also want to get dewormer into everyone since I know they all should be old enough by now (no less then 3 months old).. So what would be a good dewormer to use?

    Pumpkin seed is used as a preventative maintenance, not a wormer; other preventative maintenance measures include hot red pepper/cayenne and diatomaceous earth.

    Look for posts from Dawg53 regarding Valbazen use. Also could use Wazine (will only treat roundworm), Ivermec or SafeGuard (cattle wormer).
