    The smallest I have found is a 500ml bottle for around $50. I only have 6 chickens so this bottle would be way more than I need. Anyone know of a source that sells smaller amounts? None of the feed stores in my area have ever even heard of it. I can get Wazine for a few dollars locally but I have been reading that valbazen is better. Is valbazen so much better that it makes the extra $45 worth it or can I just go with wazine? I am mainly using this as a precaution. I have not seen any worms in the feces at this point. Thanks for any help.

    Quote:Wazine only gets rid of large roundworms. Valbazen gets rid of ALL types of worms that chickens can get. When you see worms in poop, it's too late. That only means your chicken is infested with worms and there no more room for them, with only one way to go...out the rear end!

    So how many different kinds of worms do chickens get. I was told at the feed store only round worms.

    Quote:Large roundworms, cecal worm, capillary worm, tapeworm, gapeworm, gizzard worm, eyeworm, flukes. There are several species of tapeworm that chickens can get. I'm sure there's a few more types of worms....

    Well! With $10.90 shipping cost hahaha But I guess that is better than paying $45 with shipping or $57 free shipping for bigger bottles that I dont need :)
