    I have a hen whose pale faced and lethargic- so I'm going to deworm everyone (they are 2 and have never been dewormed). I bought valbazen (albendazole 11.36%).
    Can this be used on ducks? And what's the dosage for a large Peking male?
    He coughs on occasion- idk if that's normal or gape worms

    TIA

    Thank you!
    The dosage for a 7# chicken was .5ml. I'll give him the same as long as I know it's safe for him to take

    I used it from my whole flock geese and ducks included and had no problems.
