    II think my Americauna might have worms and wanted to treat my flock. What kind do you recommend as the safest wormer for all types of worms. Someone recommended a kind in a shot but I'm not sure then I can administer them myself and was looking for other options. Thanks in advance!

    Get yourself some Valbazen (albendazole). Dose is 0.08ml per pound orally and repeat in ten days.

    The "shot" stuff is ivermectin, but it doesn't work very well in poultry, so don't waste your money on it. [​IMG]
