    What worms do you want to treat for? If you want to treat for just large roundworms and cecal worms the dose my vet told me to use is 0.23ml per pound once and repeat in 10 days, but to treat for other worms, like gapeworms and capillary worms, the dose is 0.23ml per pound for *5* consecutive days.

    My small banties get 0.25ml (1/4 cc)
    My large Banties get 0.5ml (1/2 cc)
    My small standard sized hens get 1ml (1cc)
    My medium hens get 1.25ml
    My large hens get 1.5ml
    My x-large hens get 2ml

    For those looking for an affordable and effective way to worm, get a small bottle of Valbazen. Dose is 0.08ml per pound once and repeat in ten days. Will treat all but gapeworms. For gapes you would have to give it three days in a row, but gapes are rare, so no need to worry.

    Large bottle cost close to $45 plus shipping, but I just found this:
    Source for 60ml of Valbazen for $14.75:

    FWIW, Valbazen is the wormer that Dawg53 recommends most.

    Rained out! But we got to see most of it! The most intense part was when the two planes were looping around each other and big mushroom clouds were exploding on the ground, oh and also the world's largest jet truck zooming around the explosions. I've never seen so many frantic parents scrambling to hold the ears of howling children! :lau Of course DD was the worst. She has some sort of aural sensitivity that I think is mostly psychological... She totally breaks down for some noises, and not others. We have special earplugs for her, but of course she'd taken them out. DH was searching for an ATM and literally sprinted back to us when he heard the first explosion.

    The kids lost interest pretty quickly. But DH and I had a great time! I took lots of pics and videos. I loved the WW2 planes and now I want to go home and watch Band of Brothers.

    If we ever get out of this place (no one planned how people would leave I guess?) then we're going to stop at the grocery and then get home. I've had the aches today, and now that my feet are soaked I'm not going to last long.

    Was it Newfie who commented on the flat ground? This is a "prairie" portion of the state, but also we were at the AF base.

    If y'all google image search "Cameron prairie" you'll get some gorgeous pics of the wildlife refuge about two hours south of me. If you google "lake charles" or "SWLA scenery" then you'll get more images of my big town, 45 minutes from my place. We live in the woods, but surrounded (geographically, not immediately) by rice/crawfish fields.
