    what kind of wormer do yall use to worm your peacocks and chickens? is there any other meds i need to get for them?
    i have one peacock in a pen in a field about 80 yards from where i keep chickens and guineas do u think they could get sick from that far away and how could i prevent it.

    We use Safe Guard for Goats 3cc to 4cc to 1 gallon of water, use for 3 days replacing water daily.

    We also use Ivomec Plus injectable 1/2 to 1cc depending on size of bird.

    Like I have said before I am no EXPERT but this works for us.

    The UPA forum has lists of wormers and antibiotics and how to use them. These lists also help you diagnose an illness, although a fecal sample will be your confirmation for some illnesses. You can check it out at www.upaforum.com
