    If they are large fowl they should drink about a gallon per day, mix 1 ounce of wazine per gallon of water, let them drink on that all day, bantams will drink about half the amount..repeat in ten days

    1 pince for ten birds? The packagemaker says 2 oz. For 100. That is what confuzes me.

    Yes thats 2 ounces per two gallons..The dosage for wazine is 1oz per gallon of water, reguardless of how old or how many you have..Actually birds only need about 3 ounces of the mixture to be effective..But if you mix just enough, some will drink more than others leaving a few under dosed....one oz per gallon of drinking water, let them drink this in one day..

    I use the 1 oz. to a gal. ratio also no matter how many birds are drinking it. The trick is the amount they drink in the alotted time usually a day then a follow up dose in 10 to 14 days later. [​IMG]
