Hi. Does anyone know the dosage of SafeGuard goat dewormer for chickens' and ducks' water? Thanks!
Dosage is 4cc's per gallon of water for 3 days. I dont recommend doing this though. You dont know if your birds will drink it, or drink enough of it to be effective. Also, they drink less in cooler temperatures. I highly recommend that you give it to them orally, that way you know they got properly dosed, no guesswork about it. Use a syringe without a needle and give it to them orally undiluted. Dosage is 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller birds. Redose again in 10 days. There's a 14 day withdrawal period after last dosing. You can give the eggs to your dogs.
I do it per bird orally and I give it at 50mg/kg ( .5cc/kg) once and repeat in 10 days.

Thanks! I'm just going to give it to them in their water. It's okay to use as a preventative, right? It won't hurt the if they don't have worms?
Oh, and how do I measure cc's?
cc's and ml's are the same measurements, if that helps any.
ml = cc. You can get some 1 cc/ml syringes from a pharmacy.
Safeguard (fenbendazole) is very safe and is used on cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, horses, foals, cattle, sheep, etc.
Warning - Do not use if any are molting!
What will happen? I have one hen who is missing feathers on her back because of too much mating.
