    I'm trying to worm my chickens. I've never wormed them before and I really only want to give it to a group of 4 how would I fix up a batch for just them. It says per 100 birds to give 2fl oz in 2 gal. I've got close to 100 birds but I know I water out more than 2 gal when I water them all and their not all together. I'm probably makin this harder than it is but I'm having a major blonde moment?

    I also have a question regarding wazine.
    I just wormed with it for the first time; added 2 tablespoons to 1 gal of water.
    How long do I leave that water in their pen? One pen emptied their water in two days so they now have fresh water but a couple of pens still have some of the wazine water left, it has been three days, is it safe to empty and give fresh water now?
    Also, I read that we had to not consume the ggs for two weeks after worming with wazine. I hate to wast this many eggs are they safe to boil and feed back to the chickens or should I discard them completely?
    thanks!

    I was told that the amount of Wazine passed on to the eggs is so insignificant that it is almost impossible for it to affect you adversely.

    I ate mine and am still alive, although I do glow a little in the dark now. [​IMG]

    thats what I was thinking . . . considering we eat at Mcdonalds i figured it probably wouldn't hurt us. Do yu or anyone else know if it would be ok to incubate eggs that were laid the week after worming with Wazine?
