    Could someone give me some info on this dewormer? I have seen it mentioned as the best dewormer for chickens but I can only find it for sheep? Is this the same stuff and, if so, what is the proper dosage for chickens? Does anyone know where you can buy this? Thanks for any information you could help me with.

    Valbazen (albendazole) is a liquid cattle/sheep wormer. It can be purchased from Jefferslivestock.com or you can call the number at their website. Dosage for standards is 1/2cc, 1/4cc for smaller chickens. It is administered orally. Redose again in 10 days after the initial worming. There's a 24 day start to finish withdrawal period.
