    I would follow the recommendations on the package insert from the manufacturer. I would not treat them, unless there is a problem.

    To me, prophylactic treatment is more of a hallmark of large scale operations. I suspect that the typical homeowner flock has few, if any, problems.

    It's based for horses so it does not have the dosage for chickens on it
