    I need to worm my chickens, as they seem to have worms. I have Safe-Guard Goat Dewormer, can this be used for chickens? What would the dosage be? And how would I administer it?

    I won't be able to get any other wormer for a couple of weeks.

    I also have Ivermectin Pour On for Cattle, but I think that'd be a bit strong for the first treatment?

    Forget the ivermectin pour on, go with the safeguard liquid goat wormer. The safeguard is a much better wormer than the ivermectin, I use it.
    Administer orally undiluted, use a syringe without a needle. Dosage is orally 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller birds. Redose again in 10 days. There's a 24 day withdrawal period from start to finish.

    Do you know if the eggs can be fed to the dogs? I don't see how it would and seems a shame to waste them but I can't find a definitive answer.

    I dont see any reason why not unless there are dogs that might have a reaction to fenbendazole/panacur (same.) Small dogs might, contact your vet.

    Hmmm. Three are small. I'll consult the vet. Thanks for the advice.

    I had a quick question about the Safe Guard Goat Dewormer. My birds are not adults yet they are about 13-16 weeks old. (not sure about there age we have had them for 13 weeks) We was wanting to worm them before they started to lay eggs. Are they to young to deworm right now? Also what would be the dosage for them 1/4cc per bird?

    *edit* we have 6 Australorp pullets and 2 Barred Rock pullets

    Give 1/4cc orally undiluted to each bird for 3 days straight, then you're finished. I start worming at 6 weeks when on soil.
