    I just gave four of my hens ivercide injectible for worms. I gave about four drops down their mouth. I am scarred to death of this stuff![​IMG] My dad says you can die if you get it on your skin, is it really that bad? If so wouldnt it hurt my poor birds throat?

    Oh, okay. Hmm, I've never known it to be that dangerous, but maybe there's something I just dont know. Yep, I dont know everything, LOL.
