Broody hen is worrying me. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Withdraw is two weeks after last dose. I use a syringe (no needle) and squint it under their tonge. Its really not bad if you have someone to hold them. After the first dose you wait ten days and dose them again. Wait two weeks after this before you eat the eggs. If they're bantams you give each one a quarter cc. If regular size chickens. You give them a half cc. I'm not sure about putting it in there water. I was scared to do it the first time too. If you decided to put it in their water, @casportpony can tell you how to do it.

Thank you so much!! smile.png

@rIrs roost They all seem good, thank you for asking! I had given them Wazine just the day before yesterday but I want to get them Safeguard for the follow up worming. I found liquid safeguard at TSC, and I found on another thread that the dosage for that would be 3ccs per gallon of water, leave it for two days. So that's what I will do!
Broody's mite issue is almost completely cleared up. When I first found them on her, anywhere I parted her feathers I saw multiple mites, from her head to her "knees" and everywhere in between, and around her vent it was just so so awful. Today I checked her over again and only found one mite on her, which was near her vent, so I gave her an extra rub down of ashes for good measure.
I put a zip tie on her leg the other day when she was weak and docile, to denote that she was the one who's shown broodiness, and I'm glad I did because her comb has reddened right back up, she's spry and active, and I can't tell her apart from the others again! Woohoo! big_smile.png
