    Piperazine and wazine are one in the same. It is a good chicken wormer. I have used gallons of it in the broiler bus.

    The only thing is don't use the eggs for eating though while you are worming the hens.

    It should be labled for the ratio for mixing with their water.

    Grace : I buy it cause I can also get it cheap at the feed store. I worm mine and never see any wormy disharge, so I know they have never had worms but now I treat them every spring just as a maintance measure. Yes there is a 14 day egg hold back on the Piperazine.
