Would spraying the ground with bleach or a diluted bleach/water mixture kill any of the worms eggs?
I don't think so.
If I put the Valbazen on a small piece of bread, would that work? It would be a lot easier than administering with a syringe to each bird individually. I have about 44 total.
Sounds like a good idea to me. I have 63 and yes, it sure is a pain to do that with no help. Quite the challenge. Try it and let me know. As long as you have the correct dose soaked into the bread and a chicken only gets one dose, I would think it would work. You're not diluting the medication.
Unless I'm feeling really motivated, that's how I do my peafowl and turkeys, just 10-15 per day.
I'd get a kick out watching someone worming a big tom Turkeys crack me up. I've wanted to raise some over the years, but have always been busy enough with chickens.
I definitely agree that they need to be dosed individually so they all get the proper amount. My point is that it would be a bit easier to hand them a small piece of bread with the proper amount as opposed to holding them, pulling down on their wattles and administering with a syringe. They would quickly eat the bread whereas as some will not cooperate with the syringe. Just a thought.
Yes, I think I like the idea of breaking it up into at least 2 days. I think I could do 22 in a day. Thank you everyone. I really appreciate the information!
How would one make sure that each hen got just one piece?
