I use this:
De-worming Methods using 1% injectable cattle ivermectin:
Birds up to 6 months old get 1/4 cc of ivermectin in the mouth. I want to be sure they get a
good dose since they are the most susceptible to parasites and internal parasite damage.
Grown birds are treated with 1cc of ivermectin per quart of water for 2 days. Mix a fresh
batch as needed each day. Birds drink what water they need according to size so I don't
worry about them over dosing. Over dosing isn't really a problem though for it takes a lot
of ivermectin to cause a problem. A friend did a test on a bantam rooster by giving the
bird 5 cc of ivermectin straight from the bottle. The bird was droopy a day or two, but
snapped right back and live another 6 or so years. If you want to find out more about
ivermectin you can find lots of information about it on the web. I have even called the
Merial and talked to a vet or two there.

Ivomec has withdrawal for meat (if you were going to eat the bird) but none stated for eggs.
My family and my dogs eat the eggs and if there were a problem with it surely we'd know
about it by now. Ivomec (Merial) is the brand name, ivermectin is generic. I buy generic
Ivomec from Jeffers Supply. Some feed stores carry it. Jeffers has it on sale sometimes
and it is cheaper than my feed store even with shipping. DO NOT GET POUR ON. Pour on is
oil based and will not mix with the water. GET INJECTABLE.
I think ivermectin will work for you. It has some resistance but if you do not have a lot of farms or others using it in your area it will work. It is a good idea to alternate it though, especially for worms. Use ivermectin this time and next time use something like valbazen.
That is great news!
