    My little banty cochin hen has been looking a little pale in the face like she's anemic, and today when I picked her up she started breathing through her mouth which she never does. I'd like to treat her with Piperazine which is added to the water...but she has 5 new chicks she's raising currently. Is it ok for them to have the wormer and antibiotics if I decide to try that next?
