    I just moved my pea chicks outside yesterday, they are been living in the house. The youngest is 2 months old and the oldest is 4 months old. How soon should they be wormed ? And what should I use and dose ? I have here 10% suspension safe-guard for goats and ivermectin (5mg per ml). I always keep sulmet on hand in case of cocci. Should I give them that also as a precaution?
    Thanks

    I wormed about 2 weeks after they went out. Soon after they go out is my best to worm. Chicks are more susceptible to worms than adults. Use safeguard goat wormer at 3-5 mL per gallon for 3 days. Repeat after 10 days to get the eggs that hatched into juvenile worms.
