    I think that my Lady Amherst pheasants may have worms, mainly gapeworm, but I am not sure, so I would like to worm them. I have safe-guard (fenbendazole) for goats as well as ivermectin. Will either of these work and if so is one better than the other or do I need to get something else. Thanks in advance.

    Never mind, I did a quick check and it doesn't have gapeworm. I am not sure what it has, it is sneezing and gapeing, on occasion, with some yellow "crust" around its ears. I hope it just has a cold and I am treating it with tylan currently.
