Mine used to be kept on allottments with chickens, pheasants and other stock so they were done about every 6 weeks, during racing I used Boost-Pac from Stock Nutrition but its not available now. Before pairing and after fully moulted they got Harkers capsules.

3 times a year ...before racing ...midway through the race programme (moxidectin) and end of season ,if using moxidectin as killers says treatment must be repeated 10 days later

I would do the same worm just before racing and mid season then end of season but I would use moxidectin as its a bit milder I do use fenbenzadole too in capsule form which is good stuff ...product name is called easifen sold at the pigeon pharmacy £15 for 100 I use this if the vet is not about as my vet travels a lot doing seminars ...fenbenzadole is non prescription

I used the easifen capsules on darrens advise when my birds were ill......2 days after giving them it was like an explosion in a spaghetti factory, worms all over the place....... Razz Razz

hairworms are the worst and you wont even see them in the droppings so just because you cant see um don't think they are not their ...a lot of lofts wont treat for worms during race season which is daft because that's the worst time and then they wonder why their birds have gone off the boil or never come into form Rolling Eyes

are hair worms very fine and white Darren? if so I saw these he day after using the easifen.....then on the second day I saw the big worms....also the easifen tablets kill eggs too.

to see these fine white hairs I had to put reading glasses on, with the naked eye I couldn't see them....... No

Three times a year before breeding then before racing and at the end of the year but it won't bother me if I had to worm in the moulting season

Didn't no that about the fret marks but I would sooner worm a bird for one day and have a fret on one feather than leave it till after the moult and have a bird covered in frets I like to use lavemasol

nothing wrong with levamisole in the correct concentration I think its quite a old remedy that's stood the test of time I like moxidectin when racing as its a 24 hour treatment
