gape worms

Discussion in 'Predators and Pests' started by mangobaby, Sep 27, 2011.

  1. I think I have a chicken and 1 turkey with gape worms. They sound rattley when they breath almost like a growl. The turkey sounds like she has hiccups. I need to know what to use to treat it, the dosage and where to buy the med. thanks

    There is a whole big thread on this. If you google gapeworm at the top of the page, you will see all kinds of entries.

    As for me, I use a pea size dot on their favorite treat.

    Valbazan (it's a goat wormer mostly), 1/2 ml or 1/2 cc for an average sized chicken. Repeat in 7-10 days. Go to a Farm Supply or feed store.
