    We have lost 2 chickens to gape worm in the last few days before we figured it out. Now we have one showing signs of it and we have gotten wormer from the farm store to give them. My question is what else can we do to treat our flock, and with the wormer, hoe often should they be getting it and for how long?

    Is it gapes or tapes? No matter, valbazen will kill both but will require 3-4 dosings 10 days apart.
