Safeguard goat wormer and ivermectin are the two most commonly used, alternately use them. Yes many do keep them up off the ground. It is easier to keep a controlled environment that way.

Safeguard 3-5 mL per gallon for 3 days.

I've always kept chicks off the ground for 4 months. Once I started doing that, not one ever got sick. And when I sold them, the buyer thought they were older than they really were because they were so healthy and large. Peas' immune systems aren't fully developed until around 5-6 months from what the experts have said.

We use the paste for horses(apple flavored
), small pea size bit right in the mouth. Very small amount used when you consider these are made for large livestock. Others put a very small amount, couple drops between the shoulders on the skin when using pour on.

Also Ivermectin is a little stronger and stays in the system longer. It also helps with some worms safeguard does not as well as mites and other chewing insects birds can get.
