    OK, quick question showing my ignorance. We were just informed about a pretty serious roundworm infestation in one of our chickens (who was acting very droopy). The vet said no worries, and to simply buy Wazine from Tractor Supply and following instructions on bottle. Well, here's my question... The bottle says 60ccs in 2 gallons of water per 100 birds. We have 6 chickens. So do I just prepare the 2 gallons and allow them to drink for 24 hours, or do I figure out the ratio for 6 birds (which would be around 4 ccs of Wazine in 16oz of water).

    Any input would be greatly appreciate!

    Thanks!

    I figured 3.75 ml per 16 oz. or 7.5 ml. per quart. That's what I would do since I believe you throw out the unused portion after 24 hours.

    Thanks so much! Put out the medicated water this morning and purchased the "pour on" Ivermectin for dosing in 2-3 weeks. Anything else I should be thinking of?
