    I haven't ever done a full worming of my birds, but I think I should as I'm not getting as many eggs as I would expect for young hens in good weather. A couple are a bit thinner than I would expect despite a quality and varied diet, and otherwise excellent care.

    I've been looking online and at TSC, and I just didn't know which brand or formulation to use, as none of them are formulated for chickens specifically.

    I have some of the oral paste for horses, but I think the pour on will be easier to dose correctly. I'll be near a TSC tomorrow, so I can pick some up then, I just need a little guidance.

    Thanks!

    i used some ivomectin drench for sheep because they had gape worm and a few days after it was all gone. you should put it under the feathers on the neck
    i know that it is 3 drops for a bantam but on some of the other posts it gives amounts for larger hens
