    Fenbendazole which is the ingredient of SafeGuard and Panacur can be used in chickens. Dosage is 1/4 ml for bantams, and for standards, give 1/4 ml per pound of weight. Give it once and repeat in 10-14 days. For difficult or rare worms, such as gapeworm, and capillary worm, give it 5 days in a row.
