    Yes. Normal layer size, about 4 drops on the back of the neck. 10-14 days till you can eat the eggs.

    Just out of curiosity, are you using it for chicken lice or mites?

    I don't really know, it has been recommended to me though. What exactly is it for?

    It's a wormer, gets lice and mites too I've been told.

    You gotta redose 10 days later to be totally effective against internal and external parasites. Also you need to treat the inside of their house for external parasites and repeat treatment in 10 days as well. If you dont, you're wasting time and money.

    Do you mean to use sevin or something along those lines for treating the coop and run?

    Quote:Yes, use sevin dust to treat inside the coop only. It's not necessary to dust your run.
    $4.97 at Lowe's.
