    The girls had worms, so we did Wazine 1st. Then 10 days later (last night), we did 5 drops pour on Ivermectin. Today they are all shaking their heads? Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    How much do the chickens weigh and what % Ivermectin ?

    Adverse Reactions
    Accurate dosing to prevent severe toxicity required. If toxicity results the vet may prescribe a glucocorticoid.

    CNS: lethargy, “drunken gait”,tremors, seizures

    GI: anorexia

    That site is for rats but I'm guessing toxcidity symptoms would be the same.​

    5mg per ml? That is what it says on the front.

    They are all roosting now and I see no head shaking in their sleep?
    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. We are traveling for the day. Before we go, what should I look for in the girls if the head shaking continues tomorrow morning?
