    Panacur 50mg 10% paste . 0.5 cc administered today . ( no detected worms in poop)

    I was told to administer twice a year. Next dose in fall. The peafowl breeder is very professional. But, I am reading 3-5 days in a row. They are contained but will be free ranged in a few days .
    Also he told me 1 cc but since they are 10 and 11 months I used 0.5cc.
    SO IS HE RIGHT??

    I put paste in end of snow pea pod and corked it with doughy bread .

    Welcome to BYC!

    1/2 cc of the paste = 1/2 cc of the liquid = 50 mg, which is much less than I use. I give 0.23 cc per pound for 5 days. The amount you gave *might* treat roundworms, but will not treat cecal worms or capillary worms. Can you weigh them?

    How do you measure the paste, will it draw into a syringe? I purchased the 10% panacur paste but haven't opened it yet. I plan to give in on Thursday, 10 days after I gave Wazine. I'm just unsure about dosage, how to measure it, and how to give it to the chickens? Also I have read different withdrawal periods for eggs, anywhere between 6 and 14 days, any opinion on this?

    What worms do you want to treat?

    Then I would suggest Wazine twice, not Wazine then Panacur, and the reason is that Panacur treats other worms, so if you use Wazine, then Panacur, the combo of the two will treat the large roundworms, but what if your bird also has cecal, gape, or capillary worms? Those will be treated, but in 10 days their eggs would hatch. Make sense? I know there are lots of old posts and threads that say to do one, then the other, but the newer ones don't. Also not that I've never seen a vet recommend that someone do Wazine then Panacur.

    If you still want to use the Panacur, dose for roundworms and cecal worms is 0.23 ml per pound. Can you post a picture of your tube of Panacur so I can see the tip of it? Once I see the tip I can tell you how to transfer it into a smaller syringe.

    After I first noticed a few droppings with round worms, I gave a dose of Wazine 17 to my chickens. About 2 days after that I no longer saw any roundworms. Then 10 days later I gave them a dose of panacur (I had a harder time giving them this they got most of it but not the whole dose). About a day and a half later I saw one round worm. Is this normal to see it again after the panacur is given or do I still have a round worm problem. Also since this all started I beleive that 2 of my 5 chickens have stopped laying (can't be 100% sure I am not usually home during the day). I have 3 different breeds but the 2 that are not laying are my barred rocks. I have also noticed recently a lot of barred rock feathers in the coop. Could this just be that my barred rocks are the ones with the round worms? I only noticed round worms in a few droppings otherwise everything looks normal. I have a poop board under the roosts, so the droppings that I am inspecting are the ones on the poop boards. Otherwise they have normal activity and behavior. Just worried about the loss of feathers and them not laying.

    Internal parasites tend to be regionally resistant to wormers. So you really need to have a vet (or anyone who knows how) test the feces of your birds both before wormiing and if they need to be wormed, after, to make sure the dosage and wormer you are using is effective. You don't have to do it every time, but at least every couple of years.
    Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong on this, but to have the feces checked, I think the cheapest way to do it would be to mix the feces of several of your birds together & have the mix tested.
