I know I probably could have made an effort to put this in a more orderly lay out in relation to what is for what.... BUT, hey, I found it elsewhere and wanted to have it readily available. Thanks Vi.

Wow.... Thats impressive listing. :D
Thank you. What a time saver.
I have retitled to include the birds that they are for.
Thank you so much for this!!
I would have to take my Chickens to the Vet. But so far
all is well Thanks for the info.
Thanks very much for taking your time to post this.  I'm headed to my printer. 
I assume your t measure (corid) refers to tsp not tbs?
Thank you for this. You say you found this somewhere else though, can you please add your source?
@baunlee , typically, a lower case "t" stands for teaspoons and upper case "T" is for tablespoons. It appears this list is consistent with that.
Thank you for this.  It is very helpful. '
Here is some additional data that was helpful to me:
very nicely done thank you
Thank you! Bookmarked for future reference. I had already bookmarked another chart at 
I used it because I had bought some chickens whose parasites seemed resistant to Ivermectin. A Cream Legbar with gapeworm symptoms yawned and yawned, then in spite of Ivermectin, she deteriorated to stargazer stage. Extra vitamins, extra protein, etc., didn't help. She died before I realized the Ivermectin hadn't woriked either time. So I bought Valbazen, which does kill round and cecal worms as noted at poultry pedia, but it does not kill external parasites. I did fecal exams on the dead pullet's sister to check about a week after she got Valbazen. The poor girl was making loud gasping noises, which 1/2 tsp ACV in a cup of water seemed to alleviate enough that I could do a fecal float. No gapeworms, a few round worm eggs consistent with another hatch, but about 15 spider mites on the slide. I think she must be allergic to mites because her breathing problems disappeared the day after she got Eprinex. That stuff is so expensive I use it as a last resort. I sure won't breed that line of Cream Legbars. I'll be happy if she keeps eating and regaining weight.
