Safeguard: single dose then repeat in 10 days, or just 3 consecutive doses?

    I think I've seen people recommend both ways. I did the 3 consecutive days on one chicken a few months back. She seems fine now. But the single dose and redose in 10 days seems to make more sense to get the newly hatched worms. What are ya'lls experiences?

    I think it depends on how much you give. If you give .2ml per 2.2 pounds just once you might not get very good coverage. The smallest single dose I give is .5ml per 2.2 pounds. Might be good to take a poop sample to a vet.

    She's average size, so I gave her 0.5mls of safeguard. I gave her wazine 3 days ago, but then I read to not even bother with that anymore.
