    sooo my girls are completely uninterested in the water that has the wazine. Should I give the wazine to them orally and individually? I have a small syringe so dosing appropriately wouldnt be to hard, I guess I just need to know how much.

    Maybe try taking the water away for a couple hours, then putting only the wazine water back in, they should be thristy enough to drink it then.

    You can add a little bit of sugar to the water to mask the taste. Make sure that is the only water they havve access to, even if it means keeping them in the coop. When they get thristy enough, they'll drink it.

    Wazine only treats one kind of worms, You're better off using Valbazen. It's expensive but worth it.
