    I can have a look in the store tomorrow and see if there is any panacur for poultry there. There's not much selection though. This says wormer for rabbits - 18.75% oral paste. It's a pre filled syringe that says each 5g syringe contains 0.94g fenbendazole. Unfortunately there isn't a dosage sheet, would just be for rabbits anyway.

    At my local store online it says - Verm x herbal pellets for internal parasite control - reckon that would be good enough? :/ sorry for all the questions. I so appreciate your help! Just giving the wee thing it's best chance otherwise the lady just wants to x_x

    You could use the rabbit paste. The dose for a chicken would be 50mg/kg for five days. Math looks like this for a 4.4 pound (2kg) hen:
    4.4 / 2.2 x 50 / 187.5 = 0.53ml orally for five days.

    Did a quick search for rabbit Panacur and saw it only on UK sites.

    So in case anyone is wondering, the rabbit Panacur is 18.75%, but Panacur paste sold in the US is only 10%.

    Always check my math, lol! FYI, one ml of paste does actually weigh one gram. [​IMG]
