    Hi all,

    I have a 5 day withdrawal time for humans after dosing the goat with Valbazen (dewormer). Since we are still milking her and I hate to just throw the milk away, I'd like to give the lovely goat milk to my chickens.

    Anyone have any experience with this issue??

    Any type of 'dairy' products are not good for chickens.
    Yogurt is ok to give, but thats really as close to dairy products
    you need to go. Just to be on the safe side, I'd recommend you don't give it to them. [​IMG]

    They should be fine.
    In the spring I feed goat milk to chickens all the time at least 2 or 3 times a week. Goat milk is a lot easier to digest than cow's and human milk.
    As for it having Valbazen in the milk I still think you will be OK but you could dilute the milk with water. I you want you could always dilute the milk in water..
