    The bottle says 2 oz per 2 gallons of water for 100 chickens. So I made 1/2 oz per 1/2 gallon, but I only have 10 chickens! Is that too much? I put that in the coop tonight and I'm sure they all had some. Should I just give them regular water now?

    Quote:That is a correct dosage for your 10 chickens. Leave it out for them to drink for a full 24 hours, discard, then give them regular freshwater.

    Quote:Your welcome. Nah, you're not poisoning them lol. They just dont take us backyard chicken owners seriously enough to reduce dosages down for use in smaller flocks. I just wish there were more wormers actually for chickens instead of having to use 'off label' wormers. Oh well.
