    I've searched and don't see a definitive answer on this. I want to de-worm my stags without giving it to my hens (eggs). I want to give it to them in one shot, down the gullet, diluted with water.

    If my calculations are correct, 2 oz per 100 birds would equal .59 ml/cc per bird. Thinking about diluting with 8 ml/cc of water and and giving in one syringe full.

    I have yet to use the Wazine, so I'll watch for responses to your question...

    I've been told to use Valbozene as a better all around wormer. So I am not sure if anyone else has some experience with this.

    The label on mine says to use 2 oz per 1 gallon. You don't have to have 100 birds to use that dilution. I mixed 1/2 gallon and used 1 oz then made it their only source of water for that day. After they roost for the evening, throw it out and replace with clean water. Simple.

    Quote:The search function only yields how much to use for a smaller number of birds, not how much to directly dose 1 bird. Dispensing this amount over the course of 24 hours is not nearly as harsh as administering it all at once. Which is why I was curious if anyone has done this and how much they used.
