    I recently gave my birds Wazine for their first time woming. One day with meds and 2 weeks tossing eggs. Should I notice a change? Will poop be different?

    Was this just a preventative, or did you see worms in poop? I'm asking because if you actually saw a roundworm (and wazine only addresses roundworm, not other types), then you really need to worm again at day 10, to catch potential hatching worm eggs left in their system.

    I really didn't see any difference in my birds' droppings after I wormed. Some of the eggs were a bit larger, because mine actually had worms, and I guess the worms had been taking some of the birds' nutrients...

    It was more preventative. I have had my flock for three years on down to pullet age and production has significantly dropped off so thought this was a good thing to do... just in case!


    some runny poops lately but have not see worms that I know of...
