    I have a chicken that eats like crazy but loosing weight. She is not gaining it. Well, someone suggested that she has a parasite. They suggested giving her “Valbazen”.
    The question is
    What is the dosage for a chicken?

    I saw that it was for cattle. I just don’t wanna overdose them.

    Down on the Suwannee River
    0.08 ml/cc per pound of bird.
    At 0.5 ml you were dosing each bird as if they were close to 6/7 pounds.

    As found on here. Its says some soak put it on bread and let dry and then feed being careful to watch for snatching chickens that have already had theirs. Need a 1 ml syringe

    She is a Old English Game Bird Bantam. I don’t even think she is 3 pounds. What doses would you recommend me for her?

    Maybe not quite .24 cc, otherwise you might give too much if she’s as light as you say.

    It really depends on their weight, not necessarily the breed. .08 cc per pound. So for 3 pounds not quite .25. For 6 not quite .5 etc.
