    FWIW, I don't wait, I treat for both at the same time, but I only put one medication in the water.

    If it's a syringe a needle will fit on, 0.02ml is about 1 small drop. At 4 weeks, they should weigh 200-300 grams, so 2-3 drops once a day for five days. Do you have a kitchen scale?

    A very small one i dont think theyd fit on it or balance on it.
    I noticed my 4 week old easter egger isnt growing much (body,legs) wings are growing good but she also has no comb and is half the size of the other 4 week olds i dont wanna give her too much since shes smaller :/

    How small is it? Is it large enough to put a small Tupperware container on? If so, place container on scale, zero out scale, place chick in Tupperware.
