A NAatural dewormer is Apple Cider Vinegar. 1 Tablespoon per gallon . Give as only source of water for 7 days then back to water/vitamin water. Pumpkin is also a natural de-wormer, so when squash goes on sale, stock up! After Hallowheen too! cut in half and let th ebirds pick at it as a treat. can use year round with no ill effects. Pumpkin acts as a lubricant in the intestines so it will expell all worms/.eggs in the intestines. not sure about the gapeworm but I know the apple cider vinegar helps. Good luck!

Efficacy of fenbendazole against helminth parasites of poultry in Uganda.

Ssenyonga GS.
Abstract

Fenbendazole 4% (Panacur, Hoechst) administered in feed was used to treat chickens infected with Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinarum and Railletina spp. It was also used to treat Syngamus trachea in broiler birds. There was a marked drop in helminth egg counts in the faeces on the second day of treatment and the faeces became negative by the seventh day after the last treatment. Post-mortem examination 15 to 21 days later showed that the drug was 100% effective against Ascaridia galli and Heterakis gallinarum at 10 mg/kg. However, for complete removal of Railletina spp. 15 mg/kg was required. Similarly 20 mg/kg fenbendazole was effective against Syngamus trachea. It was concluded that fenbendazole is suitable for the treatment of the important intestinal and tracheal worms of poultry, a dose of 15 to 20 mg/kg for 3 consecutive days being recommended for use under field conditions.
