    Hi all, After reading a bunch of posts here on parasites, I just ordered Eprinex (Pour On) so I can treat my flock. I read Eprinex (Pour On) is an anti-parasite medication, effective against many worms (excluding tapeworm), most mites and some lice. I was looking for how to use it and it says it is applied to the skin. I have not gotten it yet but I am assuming you mix it with water? I think I read it is not meant for chickens but is oftenperscribed by vets for them so i think it will not come with instructions on how to use it on my chickens. Does anyone know how it is used? And If it is a "Pour On" how would that treat against internal worms?

    Thanks!
    best,

  2. No, you don't mix it with water. Use it straight out of the bottle. .25cc for bantams .50 cc for standards. That's the general dose, I use a bit more. Put it on the skin on the base of their neck, it will soak in through the skin.
