    I have Peachicks ranging in age from 1 week to 1 month old. They are in brooders and will eventually be moved to a much larger cage/brooder with a raised wire floor. They won't actually be on the ground for several months. When should I start worming them? I have Piperazine and Fenbendazole to I use for my year-old male peacock.

    TSC its in a brown box, for cattle. Can use on all your birds, just dont eat the eggs or meat untill with draw time.

    Its kills, lices,mites,and some worms ,but not all.Reason I use panacure also.
