    Ahhhh - so we dosed our chickens with the wazine and 10 days later withe ivermectin pour on about a month ago (meaning we've been eating eggs after the 14 day wait) and today one of the hens pooped and a few moments later I noticed tiny white worms emerging from the poop - VERY small and thin.

    What did I do wrong? now what should I do?

    I know we dosed the wazine properly but the ivermectin I struggled with as on the site it's everywhere from a measurement (units/cc's) to drops so maybe I didn't really dose them high enough?

    What are the super small white worms? I'm sure they aren't round worms.

    Thanks everyone!

    You can read some of Dawg58's posts but he recommends valbazen as it gets all the worms and the others do not so I guess that's what's happening.

    I'll do that. Do I have to start with the wazine again of just give them the "good stuff"?

    Sounds like cecal worms. Valbazen or safeguard will get them. I dont trust ivomec products to kill anything except mites on chickens.

    Just hit them with valbazen .5ml or cc per large chicken orally.
