    I am a new member to backyardchickens, been reeding allot on this site since getting my first Standard Bronze turkey poults, they are almost grown now and I want to deworm them now as it is very humid where I live.
    I read on the forums that Valbazen is highly recommended, at the moment I can only find this product it contains Albendazole, Will it work and what would the dosage be?
    Thanks for the great site .
