    I'm almost ready to give my birds their second wormer after wazine 17 a while ago and I have safe guard liquid goat dewormer to use, 10%. What is a good dosage, I assume in water, and how long do I leave it out for? In a little research I found a dosage of 2 1/4 to 3 ml/gallon for 3 days. Is that reasonable? And is this safe for ducks? Thanks for any advice you may have.

    Safeguard liquid goat wormer should be given orally undiluted using a syringe without a needle. It doesn't mix well in water and settles to the bottom making it less effective as a wormer.
    Dosage given orally to chickens is 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standard size, 1/4cc for smaller birds.

    Ok, how diluted should it be?
