    In 5 days I'll have to worm my two chickens again, and they really hate the Wazine water so I'd like to find the dosage for administering it orally, either diluted or undiluted, but not put in the water. Does anyone know what it is?

    Thanks!

    "Veterinary Parasitology Reference Manual", "Clinical Avian Medicine" and "Avian Medicine: Principles and Applications" say the chicken dose is 100-500 mg/kg, so with the Wazine 17 (piperazine 170 mg/ml), that's 0.27 to 1.34 ml per pound.

    Quote: "Piperazine is approved for use in laying hens in Australia and Canada at doses ranging from 130 to 200mg/kg/body weight one time and a zero day egg and meat withdrawal. In the US, since there is no tolerance, this withdrawal needs to be extended."
    130 mg/kg to 200 mg/kg = 0.35 to 0.53 ml per pound

    Does that help?

    0.35 to 0.53 ml/lb undiluted, or with some water?

    0.27 ml (100 mg/kg) to 1.34 ml (500 mg/kg) per pound orally, undiluted.

    Are they laying eggs?

    Yes they're laying eggs (they're almost 9 months old), but they're not laying as often now. Ever since I discovered they had worms they've been laying for about two days in a row, taking a break, and then laying again first thing in the morning. They've taken about 8-9 days off ever since they started laying (the first on 5/23 and the second on 6/4). Both of them have taken the same amount of breaks.
    Also, do chickens go off laying during the winter even in California?
