Hello all I just joined from BYH and ChickenCrossing. I have a quick question about wazine wormer since the bottle is rather vague and I've never wormed my birds ever within the last 10 years (never had much of a problem with any diseases besides the occasional bout of lice). How long do you treat for? 1day? a week? The potentially sick hen has been eating fine, acting spunky as ever, but she has gotten thin. Her keel and legs have lost their previous tone. She has hit her 1st molt and is having a bit of a hard time recovering from it. Luckily its been warm until last week. She dropped just about all her feathers at once and they are very slow in regrowing. I give her extra goodies and supplements to try to balance her out. But she is still getting thin. And the reason for the worming. She has had 2 bouts of bumblefoot before (both times cleared up with care and quarentine but no antibiotics). I found yet another scab, but no hole underneath. Looked like clean tissue. Any ideas? She ies one of my favorite girls (the hen in the avatar). And the only vet around is just a dog/cat vet and expensive. I do have access to penicillian now at work but I only want to use that as a last resort because I have never given injections to chicken or goat.
