    I have a 8 month old pair of narragansett turkeys that I'm trying to worm. I have ivermectin injectible for cattle. How much should I give them orally and what all does it get rid of? Is there anything that gets rid of all types of worms?

    Depends. In some trials it has been shown to be quite effective against a wide range of internal parasites, in others? Not at all. Go with the Albendazole/Fenbendazole (gets everything - that includes tapeworms).

    This post, in a thread focused primarily on Blackhead (protozoan) Histomoniasis contains dosing info. for the meds mentioned above (might want to read up on Blackhead as well):
