How much Valbazen do you use for each hen to worm them?

    I plan to worm my hens with Valbazen if I can find it.

    I would give it to them orally instead of through their water supply.

    How much of a dose should I give a standard size hen?

    Quote:1/2cc for standards, 1/4cc for smaller birds.

    Is that dose for Valbazen Cattle wormer?


    I found some Valbazen chat on here and how folks say it's real good. But when I googled it I come up with Valbazen for goats & cattle. Is this the same stuff or is there a special version for poultry?

    same stuff, only place I've found it is the Internet and Jefferspet.com has the best price from what I've found. Many thanks to dawg53!

    mix 1cc of valbazen in 8cc of water, and then give 2cc of that mixture to the bird. One time dose to be repeated or swapped out by another wormer in 10 days.

    What about this stuff called Worminator?


    Great product imported from England. 5 ML. Use one drop only for Bantams and two drops only for Large Fowl down the throat only. Gets rid of all worms. Can repeat in 18 days if necessary but most times one dose will destroy all worms. 24 Hour withdraw before eating eggs after using.


    Anyone ever used that?

    Worminator sounds to good to be true. Can anyone Confirm it works? How can it work that well and only have a 24hr withdrawl to eat eggs again? The name itself sounds like a gimik to make you buy it. Anyone else have confirmed results with this stuff?

    I use Diatomitious Earth (100% FOOD GRADE) daily at a 5% ratio daily to worm mine. Theres no waiting period for eggs or chicken. I dust them with it for mites, lice etc as well as the coop especially during the summer.

    Hi I used worm enda. I did exactly what the label said and the chickens would not drink it at all. I left it there for 6 he's and would not touch it. I wasted my money on that one. Has any one had any luck with that product
