    Or will this over load the chicken?

    I wouldn't. They will both cause stress to one degree or another, and it is a good idea to give probiotics after giving either one. It's not always an easy thing to learn how two drugs might interact.

    I have done both at once, with excellent results. Over 150 birds, no bad side effects. Ivermectin orally and Tylan injected.
