    sent my DH to the chicken store to get deworming stuff and shavings. they sent him back with a little bag of worming pellets. how many pellets should each chicken eat daily?

    I hope someone responds for you but you could just call the manufacturer and ask about dosages. I've done that with questions about cat & dog medicines and had very nice service. Just Google the product or company name and see if they have a helpline number if it's not on the package.

    Sometimes it'll feel like this [​IMG] trying to find that number but it's worth it.

    Quote:Pretty sure that's not legal, so you shouldn't have any trouble getting more info from them.

    I've never seen worming pellets for chickens. I've seen it for other livestock though.

    They offer these pellets on randallburkey.com, call safeguard, alfalfa based used for swine, cattle and can be used for chickens. I don't know the dose but research them.
