    Do I use valbazen one time, or daily for a period of days? Theres no directions on it! and do i wait ten days and then treat again? What should I feed the chickens during worming? Yogurt?

    Worm ten days after the initial worming. You can feed them whatever you wish, but I recommend buttermilk mixed with scrambled eggs...you can mix it in their feed.
    Valbazen dosage for standard size birds is 1/2cc orally undiluted, 1/4cc for smaller birds.

    I know Im supposed to dump the eggs, but can I feed them their own scrambled eggs with buttermilk? Or should I buy some?

    There is residue in the egg, it would extend the withdrawal period. Also it would help build worm resistance to the wormer next time you use it.
