    I have chickens and they are sick! I don't know if it's respiratory or what! Symptoms nasal discharge in some, raspy, coughing shaking head. Son has 12 quail in a pen where the chickens have free ranges in front of before symptoms showed up I would say they are 6-7 weeks maybe a little younger. Will whatever they have transfer to these quail? Also my husband just hatched out 27 cortunix and they are about 3 weeks we have them in a cage Ina building but the chickens cou at one time go in that building too before symptoms should up! My sons are bobwhites.

    They may have gape worms.You need to worm all of them.I use ivemec it's available at tractor suppy,3cc per gallon of water.You can drop 2 or 3 drops down their throat,but do not get any in their wind pipe.Your quail shouldn't be near your chickens as chickens carry diseases that they handle but will kill gamebirds.

    I read on a post here that safeguard can do it too. Which I started is that as good or is ivermectin better

    They are both good.Stay away from wazine 17 and piperazine,they are not strong enough.

    No I would not mix them you could get a chemical reaction and it may kill them.I am not familiar with using safeguard,but with ivemec you treat them and repeat again in 10 days.I take their water away for a day so when you give them the wormer they are sure to run straight to it.And don't forget to repeat 10 days later.
    For safeguard you will need to read instructions unless someone else chimes in with the dosage directions.
