    Has anyone used safeguard canine dewormer for tapeworms in their chickens? It comes in 2 gram granule packs. Not sure how much to use.

    The dosage for 10% liquid Safeguard is 1 ML per large bird

    Safeguard for Chicken worms
    Dosage is 1cc for giants
    3/4cc for large fowl,
    1/2cc for standards
    1/4cc for smaller birds.
    Repeat in 10 days. There's a withdrawal period of 24 days start to finish.

    I'd suggest buying something you can easily measure rather then trying to guess how to mix the capsules and get a proper dosage
