    Ok I need to worm my flock of 11 ( yea I know they more of a group than flock). I bought the Waszine17 wormer. It says that for chickens over 6 weeks to use 2 oz. for every 100 birds into 2 US gallons of water.

    Ok now my math is not great but I was thinking I should use about half an ounce for the gallon of water if not less than that.

    It also says not to use in egg layers for for human consumtion. So when can I eat the eggs again I only have 3 hens laying right now and I have about 3 dozen eggs right now so I have more than enough to eat.


    Thanks for all and any help you can give myself and my mini flock .

    Look further down the bottle, it tells you 1 oz per gallon of water for birds 4 to 6 weeks old. A little lower it states to use 2 oz in 2 gallons of water for older birds. Which you then go huh? What is the difference. Since its the same amount just in different increments.

    Looking even further down it states not to slaughter within 14 days of use. That is what most folks go by when they stop worrying about drug residues.
