    Next weekend I'll have to worm my pheasant with wazine again. I know my silvers could lay anytime(though last year they only laid a few eggs late in the year) and how long should I wait to collect the eggs for hatching? I know the normal withdrawal period is around two weeks.

    It's best to worm before breeding season around the end of Dec.Remember when you worm them you have to repeat 10 days after to kill the cycle.Then they should be wormed again after laying is done around July.
    Also wazine 17 is a weak wormer,I would recommend getting Ivomec,unless you have wazine 34.
    Silvers are one of the earlier layers.
    In N.H.,Tony.
