    Had 2 birds die in the last month, figuring they have worms. Never did this before. If we use our chickens for eggs, how long after using the dewormer, are eggs safe for consumption? Can I give this to the ducks? How? They consume a ton of water a day.

    Generally the eggs are safe after 2 weeks (from stopping treatment). As for ducks...not sure. It needs to be their only water source for drinking, however, so I am not sure how that would work with ducks (I don't have ducks). Hopefully, someone will be able to give a better idea. Have you tried using search to see if there is a previous topic on ducks and deworming?
