    (posted under predators & pests first, then copied here too - just in case)

    I 'dosed' the flock last night with ivermectin (used topically) for mites. As long as I'm out of the egg business for a while, it's about time to worm them again too. How soon can I give Valbazen behind a does of ivermectin?

    Thanks

    Not sure about that, but cucumbers are a natural dewormer and I think it would be ok to give them a good salad! Lol good luck to you and your flock!

    Dawg's the wormer man, LOL. But I think he says 10 days to give the worm eggs time to hatch .
