    :/How does pumpkin act as a dewormer?

    Does it only work for pheasants or will it work for other fowl as well?

    How much should they be fed?

    Thanks

    Pumpkin seeds can help deworm, but rarely get rid of the problem all together.

    The seeds do not get digested completely, and scrape off/slice up the worms in the digestive tract.

    Many people use pumpkin seeds to deworm their various flocks.
