Wyorp Rock, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your help. I honestly thing she would have passed without your guidance. You are so appreciated. We will treat everyone for sure with Fenbenzadole. I didn't realize you didn't have to repeat it, so thank you for that. We have been using a syringe to give it a little bit at a time in their beaks. It's tedious but worth it!I would treat the rest of the flock for worms. The Fenbendazole is given orally, not in the water. So dose each bird at 0.23ml per pound of weight orally once a day for 5 days.
There is no repeat when giving the Fenbendazole for 5 days in a row.
I'm so happy that she's feeling much better! Getting rid of those worms is great!
Even though you keep a tidy coop/run, chickens can still get worms. Earthworms can be a vector, but roundworms are common in poultry.
One more question - since I thought Deens had a sour crop, and started treating it with Monistat, I should finish that out correct? Even though it seems better?
Seriously, thank you so much. Sweet Deens is itching to get back out to the coop and resume being her little alpha self!
