    Ive always used the iver pour on for cattle for parasite controll. I would use 1/2 cc on the neck & tail area for my chickens, this stuff has always worked great foe mites & lice & worms.

    I am wondering if this is ok to use on my peachix?

    ivomec pour on is what i use, 1/2 cc to 1 cc. Depends on how much gets to the skin(feathers soak up some)
    One treatment last for 30 days. Use it after my safe guard wormer. Not at the same time. 3 times a year, would not eat the eggs for 30 days. Remember it kills anything feeding on the bird.

    Feeds on blood that is. It has no effect on tapeworms(which do not suck blood).
