    I'm pretty new at raising chickens and saw some small worms in stool. Treated them with Waxine in water 2 was ago and now want to treat with Ivermectin. We have left over worming paste for horses. Is there a way to use it or do I need to purchase a different method?

    Hi and welcome to BYC. To be on the safe side, i would purchase your de-wormer of choice sold at feed stores etc.
