    That's what I get for going on my memory, I knew I should have written myself a note. [​IMG]

    I picked up Ivermectin instead of Valbazen and want to worm my chickens. Does anyone know if Ivermectin can be used for this anyway, and what is the dosage. Ivermectin is topical though like the flea stuff I put on my dog, not to be given orally, yes?

    Sure hope Dawg is online tonight, you are the "Go to Guy" for worms & lice & stuff (gosh, that doesn't sound nearly as nice as I mean it to, it sounds kinda gross, LOL [​IMG]
