    yes
    I use safeguard goat wormer... it is a white chalky liquid. The dosage is 3cc per gallon of drinking water.
    If you want to treat them individually. Id probably give each one 1/2 - 1cc just use a syringe and squirt it down the back of their throat.

    eddited to correct dosage... sorry [​IMG]

    Are you sure that is the right dose? I ask because Deerman (I think it was him) told me "worm with safe guard for goats (panacure) 3cc per gal of water for 3 days then again in 10 days." I had asked for a peachick I got that was 2 months old?

    I ask as I want to know the adult peafowl dose please.

    yes you are correct... I should finish my coffee before answering a post [​IMG])

    Wormer: Fenbendazole 100mg/mL Trade name: Safe-Guard or Panacur 10%
    Treats: capillaria, cecal, roundworm, tapeworm
    1) 3cc/gal water for 3 days. Can repeat in 10 days.
    2) 1cc (bird over 1 year), drench down throat for 3 days
    3) 1/2cc (bird between 3 mos. and 1 year) oral drench down throat for 3 days.




    I strongly recomend you joint the United peafowl Assoc. We have a very helpfull web site and a wonderful forum.

    I will tryu when I can afford it, their dues are higher than most clubs. Anyway, so the 3 cc/gallon is the adult dose, is that correct?

    I ask as I want to do my adults and it is easier to put it in the water.

    Can Eprinex and Ivermec be used topically on Peafowl? Like chickens?
