    I rotate between Safeguard, Ivomec and Wazine throughout the year. With Chickens, you have to cater it to when you want to eat their eggs, because with Ivomec & Safeguard you want to wait 30 days.

    I have used it, but my only problem with it was i could not make sure my birds were eating it. They would pick around it, and well peafowl can be picky anyway. If the ground it up better, into a dust, then I think it would work better............... but that's just MO [​IMG]

    This is the reply I got when I emailed about any withdrawal (waiting) period after giving the wormer ... {The wormer ingredient in Rooster Booster Hygromycin B is FDA approved as a continuous wormer for all types of fowl. It is safe to eat the eggs while using this wormer. There is withdrawal period of three days prior to slaughter.)
    I may give it a try. I could always grind it up so it's basically like a powder and either put it in food or their water. I did send another email asking if the wormer would still be effective if mixed in the water. I'll see what he says before I decide to buy any of the products.

    I will. I just thought since it was a multi wormer I would rather use that then mess with two different ones. I like to keep things simple around here. [​IMG]

    Would putting apple cider vinegar into their water work? I know that it's a dewormer for chickens but I want to know if it will work on peafowl because I might :)fl) get a peacock someday.
  8. No. If you really think it works go ahead and try it. Losing a $2. chicken compared to a $200. peafowl is one thing, I would not use anything but the best cure known to work on my birds. This thread is so outdated it should be removed from the forum.

    ACV (apple cider vinegar) does not treat nor does it prevent worms in any species.
    Argus and KsKingBee like this.
