    No. Do a search on here for valbazen dosage to get more information. [​IMG]

    It is put right into the mouth...but don't choke them- some put it on bread.

    It is an off-label use and you might also research how long to toss the eggs. "egg withdrawal time for valbazen."

    Medicines/treatments should not be mixed together, there possibly could be severe reactions, maybe death. Give one medicine one at a time, wait the alloted time til completion. Then wait a few days before you give the next med and so on. Not only could there be a toxic reaction, they also cause too much stress on their system.

    Quote:I was wondering about that- giving the wormer at the same time as the antibiotics. Glad you mentioned this- this is good to know. Thanks dawg53.

    Quote:LOL see my signature line that's why I am going to have just 6 chickens coming up soon. For dusting and worming.
     
  8. No and No again. draw up 1 cc Valbazen, then 8 cc of Purified water in a 12 cc. syringe and shake. Give 1 cc to each full size and 1/2 to bantam. This is the easiest administration method I have found. I can do a dozen birds in 15 minutes. Get them at about 10 pm. Its easy.
    On the antibiotics......I dont know your situation at all, but If you have not tried Oxine in a vaporizer/humidifier first I would very highly suggest that before the antibiotics. You can get it through Amazon. And maybe Jeffers? 7 oz in a gallon of water, run vaporizer for 30 minutes each night for 5 nights straight. Youll probably go through 2 gallons water (14 ozs Oxine)
    PS. Unless you have some super severe problem with repeat worm infestations...you will only need to worm them about every 8 months. Individual dosing is really easier than most people think and IMPO so much more accurate and consistent

    Quote:Ditto. I use valbazen undiluted, 1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller birds, either way works. You're right, it takes no time at all to worm all my birds, except I worm mine during the day.
    Jeffers doesnt carry oxine but Revival Animal Health does. A spray bottle with a very fine mist, like used in misting ferns works great, cheaper too. They can be purchased in garden sections at most home improvement stores, kmart/walmart.
