    I just need confirmation before I do this.

    I tested poo and found worms, arguh.

    so from what I gather, I am going to get ivermectin paste, for horses, put a pea size or smaller drop on a pea and feed it to the chickens. Going to have to do at night though. Is once enough for this or am I going to have to do this again?

    Thx
