    Quote:I dont recommend using ivomec injectable (in your link.) It wont kill worms in chickens. I recommend valbazen or safeguard.

    I'm not actually trying to treat worms, I'm trying to treat external parasites... sorry I should have been more specific. My roosters have mites in their combs- I've been using bag balm on them but that takes many applications to be effective and, well, my roosters are no fun to catch. I just read a post that said a tiny drop of injectable (not injected) on the back of the neck will get rid of external parasites like lice and mites, and was making sure this is the right product.
