    I think it is a liquid. Don't know much else, though, sorry.

    Fenbendazole is the active ingredient in Panacur, a wormer suitable for chickens, thats is a liquid, is this the form you needed the dosage for?

    I found this dosage:

    .2 ml for my smaller banty chicken (2 to 3 pounds-ish).
    .4 ml for my 4 to 5 pounds-ish hens.
    .6 ml for my larger girls -- about 6 to 7 pounds-ish.

    Ok, well the dosage is usually between 10mg and 50mg per kg of weight, depending on the percentage solution of the Panacur liquid, and it should be repeated 7 to 10 days later.

    I dose my chickens (according to my vets instructions) with Panacur oral solution. The dosage is 10mg per kg body weight in chicken. You can either administer it directly via a syringe, or put it into their drinking water. If you're putting it in their drinking water, you need concentrations of 0.5 to 1ml Panacur oral solution per 1 litre of drinking water.

    Hope this helps [​IMG]

    It is generally a veterinary only medication, however, a general farm supply store may have a licence for it.

    Why would you worm a chicken with Baytril? Baytril is an antibiotic, not a wormer.
