    Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond. I am getting ready to worm with Wazine, I know it is only for roundworms, but I am using the hit softly first then hammer later method. The dosage is higher for turkeys, which I house with my chickens. Should I worm them individually with the Wazine, to which I have no idea what the dosage is, or put the higher (turkey) dosage in the water and let everyone drink from that?

    Thank you
    Rachel

    I have all my birds together too. I just hit them yesterday and added 2 ounces to 2 gal of water. Thats what I read. Who know, I might be wrong. Good luck!

    If you read the directions on the back label and break it down for both turkeys and chickens, dosage is 1 ounce of wazine per 1 gallon of water. RedRoosterFarm...your dosage is correct (one ounce wazine per gallon of water.)

    After a lot of questioning whether to Wazine or not...I did it today finally and I think I did 5 ounces to a gallon of water??? what happens now that I gave them too much?

    Quote:Why did you use 5 ounces to a gallon? The directions are on the back of the bottle. Hopefully your chickens wont have a reaction. Discard the eggs in the garbage for 2 weeks.
