    Can anyone tell me if you can worm turkeys and ducks with red pepper like you do chickens?

    Welcome To BYC! Glad you joined the flock. By red pepper you mean actual red peppers or is there a wormer product called red pepper? I've never used red peppers as a wormer. I've used garlic, onions, and safeguard before.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about turkeys and ducks, but definitely post on our Turkey and Duck sections in Other BackYard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our turkey and duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    I've never heard of worming chickens with red pepper - so I wouldn't venture an opinion about using it with other poultry. You best information on this would come from the turkey and duck threads. I'm sure they can help you out.
