    More on ml vs cc:

    From: http://www.ask.com/question/1-cc-equals-how-many-ml
    How many mL are in 1 cc?

    Answer
    These two measurements are equal to one another. 1 cubic centimeter (cc) is equal to 1 milliliter (ml).

    A milliliter (mL) and cubic centimeter (cc) are equivalent to one another. Therefore, 1 mL is also 1 cc. This makes converting the units very simple!

    [​IMG] I'm glad you brought it up, your question will definitely make me think about the best way to post dosing info.

    So I got some Valbazen today and I understand the dosage, but what is the best way to orally treat chickens? I have a 3cc syringe, but do I put it under the tongue, to the side as in tubing or just drop it in the tip of the open beak? I don't want them to aspirate it.

    I angle it toward the side in the back of the mouth and just go slow when I give it. Give some, watch to see they swallow, then give more.

    Going slow and just a tiny bit at a time.
    I kind of slightly pry the beak open with one of my fingers with syringe in same hand. I then put just enough so I can see it land in their mouth, then when I let go, they swallow it themselves.
    Kinda hard to explain...Sorry if that doesn't help.

    Ya, I don't put the syringe that far back, I just put it on their tongue or what their mouth can handle so they can swallow it themselves.
    That's a crazy picture, haha..

    Thanks! Not looking forward to tossing eggs for the next 3 weeks, but the health of my birds trumps eggs any day of the week.

    Ya, I hear ya. If you have a worm bin they LOVE LOVE LOVE the egg shells. Can even crush them up and bury them in the garden dirt.

    I don't think I did 3 weeks of egg tossing..I may have done about 10 - 14 days.
    Did you do the Wazine first before Valbazen?
