Does anyone use Worminator? - Page 6

post #51 of 57
Well the comment regarding Worminator said 24 egg toss out and that it also got rid of mites and lice. We used pour on once on our flock for hookworm. Never saw it again, and we tossed eggs for 7 days. I was looking for something a little safer, but I also don't trust someone who won't "reveal" ingredients in something I'm exposing or feeding to my layers.

And whatever it is, I'd be willing to bet money that it's not approved for egg laying hens n the US.

Buyer beware!

Yes I have had them done.
I also have seen the worms on the ground under the roost when I went back to check after dark ...

What kind of worms eggs were in your fecal float?

What really irritated me was he told me that large fowl got two drops and that it didn't matter how big they were. Makes no sense, just think about it... how big are geese, peacocks and large ducks compared to a 6 pound laying hen? A large goose can weigh 22 pounds, right? That's almost 4x the weight of a large laying hen, and all drugs that are given orally are supposed to be given by weight.

I know it works .... I saw the worms on the ground ..... Most all wormers are not approved for chickens.
If you want to use it .... If not then don't ... I'm not discussing it any further .... Thanks

Worms seen on the ground are large roundworms and they are the killed very easily with almost all wormers, but worms like capillary worms, or gapeworms, those are much harder to treat.

I'm just a little funny when it comes to medicine and dosing. If the active ingredient isn't listed along with the mg/ml or mg/g, there is no way I will use it. When ingredients are properly listed, one can search for studies and documentation on the medicine, figure out if it will work for what they need, then give a safe and effective dose. One can also figure out what the true withdrawal is.

I wish that Twin City would just come clean and tell every one exactly what's in his product. :(
