I just bought Safe-guard 10% Liquid 100 mg/ml (cattle and horse). The vet asked how many chicken I have and their avg. weight....I have 70 chickens, 3- 4 lbs (just a guess 40 are 7 month old Chantecler's, 6 bantams, the rest are regular size adult birds). The vet recommended a dosage of 30ml/day mixed in half their days feed, for 5 days (said he based it on 20mg/Kg) . And, if I was worried about it, a 10 egg withdrawal.

What do you think of that? I like the Safeguard Mash idea with zero egg withdrawals but its such a tiny amount compared to this dose. Other doses are twice as much. The more I read the more confused I get....is there anyway to sort this out?? I don't want to give to much or to little. I feel like I should just go with the vets dose and not worry about it, he wasn't worried haha...but couldn't help researching and now I don't know what to do.
