    Well the ladies have worms...I have never delt with worms.... so off the the fed store I go and all they have in Wazine 17. I Follow the instructions.. one ounce per gallon. That was yesterday... I am leaving the water there for 24 hours then I take it away and replace with fresh non treated water....and after 14 days I do this again???? I am just looking for some re assurance. The girls are a bit "quiet" today and the wormer seems to be working as I have found some pretty gross piles of poo in the coop. They seem to be eating and drinking normally....there is just not a lot of chicken drama happening today

    Is it normal for them to be quiet???

    Sorry no one answered you right away. I hope you found some answers here on other threads. My flock was severely infested with roundworms. I did what you did, Wazine for a day then follow up in 10-14 days with another dewormer. Wazine is fine again if it's only roundworms you've got. The thinking is that the worms can become resistant to dewormers if used continuously. I used Safeguard. I ordered flubenvet online and am still waiting for it to arrive. I hope your flock did alright.
