I've never wormed my birds and I need to what and how do you worm Chickens????
I use fenbendazole as directed by my avian vet (Safeguard for Goats or Cattle at TSC) at the rate of 50mg/kg by mouth and repeat in ten days. 50mg of Safeguard for Goats/Cattle is .5cc.

Use a syringe without a needle. Withdraw the liquid valbazen or liquid safeguard from the bottle and dose each bird orally undiluted, 1/2cc for standard size chickens, 1/4cc for smaller chickens. Redose your birds again in 10 days. Pull the wattles down and the mouth will open, squirt the liquid in the mouth and immediately release the wattles so the bird can swallow the liquid on her own and not aspirate.
Jefferslivestock.com carries both products.

Thank you very much Dawg :) Do you know if there is a withdrawal period for the eggs after worming? I really appreciate your help :)
