    Hey, guys. I was distraught to find worms in a small pile of runny poo until I realized that the worms themselves did not look at ALL healthy or mature. I dosed them with Wazine and then, 2 weeks later (I misread and missed the 10 day mark), I used pour on Ivermectin (a friend came over and helped so that everyone got it on their skin, not feathers). Yesterday was exactly one week from that pour-on treatment. Here's the question:

    Should I be worried about seeing worms a week after the treatment or is it simply proof that the Ivermectin is working? How long does pour on take to work through?

    I've never used the pour on with chickens, but it starts working within 24 hours in cattle and goats.
