What is a good wormer for laying hens that you can still eat the eggs and where can you find it?
I use Eprinex pour-on when I worm. It works on both internal and external parasites, and there is no withdrawal time recommended. Dosage is 1/4 cc for small chickens and 1/2 cc for larger chickens, placed on the bare skin on the back of the bird's neck. I believe it works on everything but tapeworms, but you can search this site for more information on it to be sure. Here is one link with more information: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/137698/eprinex-does-it
oops - I missed your second question. I buy it at Tractor Supply.
Valbazen is a great all around wormer and albendazole is used in humans so you know it is safe. Please see my signature link on why routine worming is so important.
