6-8 week old grower just pooed a worm...

Recommended Posts

Very unusual for a bird of that age to have worms, and you'd have to consult a vet regarding worming them as I don't know which wormers are safe for birds that young. It is important to get the full facts and speak to a vet soonest as birds this young can be badly affected by gut worms.

I would suggest that you send off a composite faecal test to Westgate Labs and see what comes back - I would recommend that you call or email them prior to sending it off so that they are aware of the age of the birds and circumstances when they are looking at the samples.
