    When i went out yesterday, Alice, my BA pullet that has been sneezing was starting to yawn a lot and sound hoarse, like she was wheezing. So, i come on here and tahdaaaah! Sounds like gapeworm.

    All my TSC had was safeguard for goats (fenbendazole?) In liquid form. So i check the dosage on a few different sites and im getting mL to cc, leave it for two days or five, redose in a month or two weeks....so i put 1/8 tsp in a gallon of water and will collect it tomorrow afternoon.

    Is that too much/too little? And how long should i wait for signs of improvement before i dose her again?
