    hi, i posted earlier this week, and someone suggested that i deworm my chickens as parasites could be a reason for their symptoms. so my question is... what do i deworm them with?

    Safeguard (fenbendazole) liquid goat wormer is administered orally, use a syringe without a needle. Dosage is 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standard size, 1/4cc for smaller chickens. Redose again in 10 days. There is a 24 day withdrawal period start to finish.
