Worm the entire flock. Wasine and then valbazen or valbazen both times.
Okay hey everyone here's another update on Jasmine she is still in her doctor crate without food, she has had water and been offered a bit of grit, since we haven't seen her eat what was offered. We have been going back and forth between impacted and doughy crop. Tomorrow we will be getting the missing ingredients we need to make the doughy crop remedy. Today in case it would help we gave her 2 stool softener gels(the meds inside) with 1 cc of baby carrots. She took it with little fight and has been receiving several crop massages a day. Tomorrow we are planning on doing the first wave of mite attacking and I'm hoping it all goes well.
In the mean time Jasmine's crop is smaller than it was(used to be about the size of a small-medium peach and is now down to a ping pong ball or so) It also feels as though it is much less doughy. There has still not been a smell coming from Jasmine's beak. I'm hopeful but still worried.
We have been thinking about it and would like to worm the flock but want to be sure that it is something that is fda approved. How long are the withdrawal periods for the wormers you mentioned?
How long after the dusting should we wait to work them?
Will we still be able to collect and hatch egg for the hatch-a-long if we worm them this week?
I'm also guessing we have to wait until Jasmine's crop is empty ideally?
