    Ok, I bought a life time suply of Waizin (SP?) dewormer. Directions say 20 oz to 40 gallons water for 1000 birds - ah, I have only 4?! any idea? 1 oz to a gallon still seems like a lot, please advise!!

    Wazine 17% is one oz per gallon of water
    Wazine 34% is 1/2 oz per gallon of water..
    By your directions I think you have wazine 34..With just 4 chickens you can mix 1/4 oz to 1/2 gallon of water, let them drink on this all day..then repeat in ten days

    The calculation will still be the same. I would make up a gallon (old milk jug) and pour them out what you think they will drink a little at a time, so you won't waste it. It is usually cheap though, so maybe not a big deal.

    1/2 oz to a gallon (1 oz = 30 ml or 6 tsp or 2 tlb.)

    Hope to help, HenZ
