I have the girls the safeguard with bread, as the direct syringe in the mouth was too much of a fight. The Roos had some with bread and then I also added it to their water. Boris and the pullets ate some of the bread, but not all of it - so I put some in their water.

Tomorrow, the girls will get electolites and probotics in their water, and I will make up some oatmeal with antibodics in it, along with their layer food. The reason for the antibodics is I'm afraid that any underlying problems may come to a head while they are being wormed. One girl has a cold/respitory thing going on, and ALL of the birds are very underweight. I went ahead and dusted all the adults with seven dust. I'm going to try and supplement the layer food and scratch with their eggs (that I can't eat anyways), yogart, honey, oatmeal, and cabbage - in hopes they will start putting weight on as the worms die off. When I get the Valbazen, I will use that as my followup dose at 10 days out.

No one looks sickly, just two with feather issues and one with a possible URI. Keeping my fingers crossed that this works and no one is to far gone that they don't survive.

How much Safeguard did you put in their water? I ask because that is not how Safeguard is usually given....

Oh crap - my significant other was so ****** at me (cause he says I choose to do everything the hard way) he googled ways to give Valbazen. Because I put it in last night, to avoid this am as I have a good hour of taking care of animals, I can just dump it. I put maybe a teaspoon in the gallon watered, and less in the liter size waterer. I just wanted to make sure the roosters, Boris, and the pullets had enough - since they were more picky about the bread mixture. It was dark when I put it down.

Interim report - so I guess there will be a final report, besides the parasites mentioned, he also tested positive for mycoplasma MS RRT-PCR. But tested negative for mycoplasma without all the initials. I will look into that tomorrow. He did test negative for avian flu.
