    I've looked at numerous sites with no luck. Can you buy on amazon uk and have it shipping to the US? Any other effective dewormers out there with no egg withdrawal?

    SafeGuard is actually fenbendazole, but it is pretty much equal to flubendazole or flubenvet. Albendazole or Valbazen is probably even better, but all 3 are very good wormers.

    I've been using safeguard, and just ordered a bottle of valbazen, but would would love to get a hold of some flubenvet for the no egg withdrawal. Seems like it was availiable to order in the US a fews year ago, but maybe not now?

    Thanks, but they don't ship to the US either. Oh well.

    Should a chicken with worms be quarantined?

    It's not necessary to quarantine, it's best to worm all your birds at the same time. An exception would be if a bird is showing signs of tapeworms. Sometimes there's only a few birds that might be tapeworm infected and it's easiest to cage them and treat accordingly.

    How do you administer the safe-guard to the chickens? Also are you able to consume the eggs during treatment?
