After vaccination would you give before offering wormers or canker and cocci products

Two weeks for me, but I have little or no experience. The vaccination says two weeks before mixing with other pigeons, so a good indicator as to when they are in the clear. Someone more versed should keep you right. :)

I thought it was 2 weeks myself until I read the instructions fully on the Columbovac vaccine and it says 21 days before mixing and at least 4 weeks before racing/ showing

They must have changed the instructions. erring on the side of safety. Read Walter Boswell's health tips. He talks all about vaccination and shedding. :)

I have always vaccinated, ivermectined and cankered young birds on leaving the nest and is the only time I blind treat with no problems whatsoever.
