In the Brooder
- Nov 22, 2015
I have tapeworms that I have confirmed and I believe I also have gapeworms. I have lost three hens who were just over a year old. They were exhibiting mouth opening, neck stretching, and shaking their heads. I am trying to find a wormer that will take care of both worms and was wondering if Valbazen would do the trick? Dealing with worms has given me a greater appreciation for the patience it takes to raise a healthy flock. I am dreading having to catch 11 hens to give medicine to for 3-5 days! I wish there was an easier way to treat a flock. I know Valbazen will treat for tape worms, just not sure about gapes. If Valbazen won't treat gapes, can I use Safeguard at the same time as the Valbazen and just treat them with both or is that too much medication at one time?
