    So the wazine x instructions are for 100 chickens.....should i cut back dosage for my 4 chickens or do it as instructed. The guy at tractor supply said cut it back but sometimes those guys dont have a clue. Thanks they def have the worms so need to get it done.

    Put one ounce of Wazine in one gallon of water. It doesn't matter how many chickens are drinking it, it is the same dosage. Do it in the morning so that they have all day to drink it. Make sure everybody gets a healthy dose of it. Only use if for one day, the next day give them fresh clean water. [​IMG]

    Also, you might want to follow up in 2 weeks with some Safeguard. The Wazine won't get all the worms but it is good to start with. Use the Safeguard in 2 weeks to rid them of the worms the Wazine didn't get. Just put a tiny bee bee sized drop on a piece of bread and only give them one piece each, once. That should rid them of all worms. [​IMG]

    I'ts the same dosage, 1 oz per gallon of water... But actually they only need about 1 1/2 oz of this mixture to be effective

    A one time dose of fenbendazole in chickens is not very effective...

    Take their water away the night before you administer the Wazine to make sure they drink the medicated water in the morning.

    Good luck!
