Not sure why people say to do that, it makes no sense to me. Makes more sense to follow up with Wazine. If I were you I would follow up in 10-14 days with Wazine, then the next time you worm use Valbazen or Safeguard.
Remember that Wazine treats only large roundworms.

Valbazen will treat large roundworms, cecal worms, capillary worms and possibly some species of tapeworms.
Dose is 0.08ml per pound orally and repeat in 10 days.
Safeguard will treat large roundworms, cecal worms, gape worms, capillary worms and possibly some species of tapeworms, but it needs to be given five days in a row to get gapes and capillary worms.
Dose is 0.23ml per pound orally for five days.
Okay, well here's my issue and I'm hoping I didn't mess up. After reading forums and such I went out and wormed my chickens with zimecterin. Went out this morning and found worms in two of my chickens poop. But then I realized people said to do wazine first then follow up with another wormer. Should I be worried?
If you found worms, that's good, and no need to worry.
I have a lathagric chicken that has lost a lot of weight and is always sleepy other than that no other symptoms. My guess was right that she had worms a huge one. I'm just scared I gave her the strongest one first i might of hurt her. I'm not sure. Thank goodness for this website because I would be so lost when it comes to treating my chickens
You might want to get some Safeguard and worm her 5 days in a row, 'cause ivermectin is not a very good poultry wormer.
FWIW, I have given Safeguard and ivermectin at the same time to very thin, sick birds.
