    Quote:Hope Pine Grove don't mind if I answer this. You give it orally, undiluted. 1/4 cc for standard size birds, 1/8 of a cc for bantams.
    ETA: The label should say: Albendazole 11.36% (equivalent to 113.6 mg/ml)

    Great post. I just have one question, did you administer any follow up doses or did just one dose do the trick?

    HI, did you get an answer on whether to repeat the dose on the Albendazole for deworming your chickens? I just used it last Friday and also would like to know the answer to that. Thanks so much!

    Thank you for this info! I have a pale faced/lethargic RIR. Going to give the albendazole see if worms aren't be problem.
    I have a Peking duck whom I'd also like to treat. Does anyone know if this is safe for him?

    What is the youngest you would deworm? I have some 2 month old chicks but found tapeworms in one of the adult hen's poos, so I want to just do them all but not sure if I should wait...

    Also, did just one dose work for you?

    Oh boy, this is an old thread, so I hope somebody can give me an answer. I'd like to dose my chickens in their water. What would be the proper amount?

    I'm thinking you don't want to dose the water because there's no way to control the amount of meds each bird gets.
