    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me if you need to worm and vax 5 mo old pheasants. I plan on keeping a couple of pairs but use the rest for meat. I have both ornamental and ringnecks.
    If I need to know anything else to do with them please let me know.

    All birds should be wormed 2 times a year.More worming required for digging species like impeyans,cheer,eareds.Vax is not needed as far as I know.

    Thanks Tony,
    Where do I go for the worming and is it a shot or a pill?

    You can get it at your feed store.Piperazine is usually what they carry,but if you can get wazine 34,it is a much stronger dose.It is added to their water supply.
