    I have previously treated my peas with Safeguard and now it is the turn for ivermectin. I got some pour on ivermectin for cattle (5mg/ml) but have no idea how much to use on the birds (age 5-8 months). It says for cattle to use 1ml per 22ibs body weight.
    I am terrified of overdosing my babies. Does anyone know about tis formulation?
    Thanks so much!!!

    I'm pretty sure I used the same dosage as the injectable, 1 cc per adult peafowl under the wing...... but let someone else chime in also

    I use 1cc on the shoulder where the wings attach. 1/2 cc is all that you need, but the feather soak up some. One treatment last for 30 days.
