    going to worm for the first time. I have 20 standard size chickens, dosage says .8cc under skin at back of neck. not sure what size of needle to use . . . and can I use same needle on all birds? do I need to clean in between? and last question for now; if that is the correct dosage for standard size birds, what amount would you reccomend for silkies?
    thanks in advance!
