I won't be able to get any other wormer for a couple of weeks.
I also have Ivermectin Pour On for Cattle, but I think that'd be a bit strong for the first treatment?
Forget the ivermectin pour on, go with the safeguard liquid goat wormer. The safeguard is a much better wormer than the ivermectin, I use it.
Administer orally undiluted, use a syringe without a needle. Dosage is orally 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller birds. Redose again in 10 days. There's a 24 day withdrawal period from start to finish.
