    I just gave my EE's their second dose of Safeguard (fenbendazole), today is the 10th day from the 1st dose. I accidently gave the 1st hen 1 cc instead of the 1/2 cc it called for! Is their anything I need to do and should I be concerned?

    That would not be a problem. Actually that amount is used to treat other more uncommon worms 5 days in a row. SafeGuard or fenbendazole is very safe and hard to overdose that easily.
