    I bought Wazine and Safeguard; for worming do I use the Wazine first 7.5 ml per quart of water , do this for 24 hours. Then in 10 days use the SafeGuard 2.25 ml per gallon of water for 3 days; repeat in 10 days.
    Is this correct?
    My pullets are only 6 weeks old and 1 week old, 2 of each age. Is it too early? One of my pullets had black runny poop so I'm thinking she has worms.
    Thanks for any info! :)

    You are correct on the wazine dosage, 7.5ml per quart.
    As far as the safeguard liquid goat wormer dosage; administer orally to each chicken undiluted. Dosage is; 1cc for giants, 3/4cc for large fowl, 1/2cc for standard size, 1/4cc for samller birds....cc's are the same as ml's.
    If I were you, forget the wazine and just use the safeguard, then redose them 10 days later with the safeguard again. Dont bother worming your 1 week old birds. The 12 week old birds should get 1/4cc.
    Here's the poop chart for you to take a look at:

    Sorry, I misread the 6-7 week olds, dont know why I stated 12 week olds. I'd wait til they are at least 10-12 weeks old before you worm them.
