I don't have any problems now, but i know that a problem should be prevented before it happens.Anyone ever used ivermec to deworm quail? if so what would be the dose for grown birds in a 5gal waterer. How about 3 week old chicks dose for 58oz waterer?Thanks
Yeah, thanks Steve. That was very helpful for me too. Great stuff.
I use that for my peafowl but it pours on behind the shoulders. Mr. Cupples of Cupples farms,http://www.cupplesfarm.com/ , sells a feed for worming. It contains Fendendazole, also known as Safe Guard, in the feed and can be feed to the birds for 3 days to 12 days as a sole feed with no weaning time. I use this on the peafowl as well and have never had any problems with low fertility. We have a wildlife perserve here specializing in exotic and endangered animals, including the whooping crane and Atwaters Grouse and their onsite vet recommends safe guard and the Ivermec exclusively on Turkey, chicken, geese, Peafowl and any other animal that might encounter worms on the ground. Also she added in thier cages they lightly sprinkle salt on the ground to drive the earthworms back down so the animals to dont come in contact with the worms. Use this method lightly as high doses will kill plants and grass. This can even be mixed in with a 7 dust when sprinkled to also help with insects. I hope this helps a little
