    [​IMG] I just wormed my flock with Wazine.. Do I have to wait the 10 days before I can worm with the ivermectin pour on? OR can I go ahead and worm with the Ivermectin now? Will it hurt them if I did? Im ready to eat my eggs... if I wait to worm agian in 10 days I'll have to waith 14 more days before I can eat them ,, thats along time. although I do no ppl that eat rite after worming with Ivermectin..

    Curious about this too. I was told when I got my chicks that I could use DE and that would take care of any worms. I use it on their litter, in their food and occasionally on them. I haven't noticed any worms in their poo so hopefully it is working.

    Yes, you do have to wait after the Wazine. I think its 14 days for the Wazine and 10 for the ivermectin, if I remember right.

    Quote:Wait 10 days, then use the ivermectin. Then wait 14 days before you can eat the eggs. ETA: Here's a link that you can go to; to read scientific studies regarding withdrawal time for ivermectin. Go to post #38 and read the third sentence, including the link to the studies: (The link to the study isnt working. If you decide to eat the eggs before the withdrawal time and you have a sensitivity to ivermectin, you consume the eggs at your own risk.)

    Quote:DE isnt a wormer because it's wet inside the chickens innards. DE isnt effective when wet until it dries.

    i used DE and still found that my hens had worms , not to say that it dont work , mine may have been very infested and needed somthing alot stronger.. i still use it my self but when/if you suspect they are heavily infested i would use something that is desingned to kill the worms.. Wazine or the Ivermection pour on... that way you no for sure your treating te problem...

    Quote:You would be better off using valbazen and/or safeguard. Valbazen kills all known worms that chickens can get. Safeguard is an excellent wormer as well except it wont kill tapeworms. Also, it's not recommended for use during a molt.
