Just presenting my plan of treatment to make sure it should work. Okay so I've been trying to treat tapeworm in my flock, thought it was gone but now it's back with a vengeance. Never thought I would hate a bug more. Anyway, done some more research and I THINK this will be an appropriate treatment plan but I want to be sure. Worming is crazy confusing sometimes. I have about 50 chickens so it would be a very long afternoon trying to treat everyone, although I might go that route to treat the ones that aren't that bad. But first I'm going to separate a couple that are really bad. I'm going withhold their food(but keep water with them of course) for 24 hours and then treat them with a pea sized amount of ivermectin gold horse wormer. Once treated I'll offer just a little bit of food and then go back to normal feeding. I'll toss any eggs and then 10 days later I'll treat them with a pea sized amount again. I'll toss eggs for another ten days after. My question with this treatment is whether or not they'll get reinfected again once put back with the rest of the flock? I don't think so from reading about tapeworms. I think they'd have to eat another bug that was infected but I wanted to be sure. So hopefully this works? So frustrated with this, and I feel like such a bad chicken mama for not nipping this is the bud sooner.
