    I picked up 125 ML bottle of Safe-Guard (fenbendazole) dewormer for goats Suspension 10% at Rural King tonight.

    I have pen with 8 peacocks all about 8 months old. They are all about the size of Adult Canadian Geese. In the pen are a few Chinese Red Pheasants about the same age.

    What is the best way to worm the crew and what dosage? If I put it in a gallon waterer, will it be too strong for the pheasants?

    Any help would be appreciated

    3 cc per gal. for 3 days then again 10 days later. would be fine for the pheasants also.

    Deerman,

    As always, thanks for the help. If they don't drink the entire gallon the 1st day, will the medicine be ok for them on day 2?

    deerman,.......I can't find any safeguard at either tsc or Orschelen near us. Is there anything else I can use? I have asked them to let me know when their order comes in but they have neglected to do so and they are always gone by the time I get there. [​IMG]
