    Can I worm with pyrantel pamoate at this time of year? Does it effect in any way the new feather/molting. Also, is it safe for newly weaned squeakers? I have a powder that is 1/mg active ingredient per about 33 mg powder (this powder is from a crushed tablet). I assume, for an average...

    I've been wondering how to treat my flock for worms and possible disease. I am new to the sport and recently was given some birds. What 2 or 3 treatments do you feel are essential to raise health pigeons. I've found Moxidectin Plus which seems to handle worms and lice, any thing else?

    Went to the local feed store and the only poultry wormer they had was "Wazine", for chickens and turkeys. Is this okay to use on pigeons? Anybody use it out there? btw - i assume i should NEVER use a wormer on pigeons that are breeding or have young in the nest, right? Thanks for your help. Cal

    Hello 'm having a bit of difficulty worming my pigeons. Before I tried to user Worm-Ende-Plus, it's a liquid, but they wouldn't touch it. So I searched forums and some suggested to try to add some honey to disguise the taste. So I did, and it worked: one of my pigeon drank a lot of it. But...
