    Can you give a hen both Tylan and Safeguard at the same time? Or should I finish the tylan dosing, give her a day or two then worm her with the safeguard?

    I wouldn't give both at the same time. Worming and giving antibiiotics are hard on a bird's system. Doing both at once would be even harder. Give the Tylan, and then give the Safeguard. This way, you will lessen the stress on the bird.

    I recommend giving the tylan first, then the safeguard a few days later. Once the course of tylan is finished, provide your hen with probiotics before you dose with safeguard.
