    I know my chickens have worms, I've seen them. I also know that the ones I've seen are either roundworms or whipworms (do chickens get whipworms?).

    I also know that they have mites and/or lice.

    The only wormer I have is wazine, which I know is good for getting rid of adult roundworms. I need help deciding what type of 'other' wormer I need. I just recently wormed the chickens with the wazine, so I should be good with a stronger wormer.

    This place, First state vet supply has several different kinds, and I don't know what's what.

    So which one(s) would be best to treat the worms and bugs. I have a lot of chickens (100+) of all different sizes.

    Are any of these safe to use on ducks? Geese? Guineas? Pigeons? Quail?

    Sorry for all the questions [​IMG]

    I use Ivermectin pour-on. I use a syringe to get some out of the bottle. I put a couple of drops under their wing. Just pull back any feathers and put a drop it on the skin. It's alot less stressful on me and the birds to do it that way..1 drop for OE sized birds..I use 2 drops on my silkies and 3 drops on larger fowl. Takes care of worms and mites & lice. Since you have already used Wazine, this is the next one to use....[​IMG]

    Quote:The site I listed, is the ivermectin they have the right one? It looks injectible by the type of bottle, so would that work?

    Would this work for guineas?
