    We have a male and two females in outdoor pen they get fed daily and the food is never gone but we freshen it up along with water. Today went out found white peahen dead behind hunt. I looked her over no injury but she was thin.... I watched her eat daily she would follow me in the hut for food but food never went empty. We worm them every 6 months. Any thoughts?
    Are my male and other peahen in trouble? (They really aren't domesticated)

    Sorry for your loss. [​IMG]

    When you worm, what do you use and how much do you give?

    Highly unlikely to treat anything other than large roundworms. [​IMG] You mean 0.05 ml, not 0.5 ml?

    No need to be sorry, you just gave what a vet told you to give.

    You just learned what we already knew, that Ivermec is not an effective wormer. Safeguard or Valbazen are what to use.

    And what kind of wormer like safeguard for goats or is there a bird one?
    Thanks for all your kindness and help!
