    Anyone tried the Safeguard pellets for worming their birds? The bag gives the dosage for turkeys but not any other fowl. Anyone tried this product on their birds, or knows what the dosage should be?

    Turkeys or chickens would be the same.

    I just looked at a bag of that at the feed store the other day. I think it would be difficult to give an accurate dose of it to each bird, since it has to be fed over 5-6 days, and I wouldn't think the feed it's in would be right for a chicken. I have way too many chickens for that little bag of feed, but I guess it might work if you just have a few birds.

    Giving an oral dose of the liquid or paste would be best and probably much cheaper.
