I have wormed my flock once, last summer, they all ate the medicated bread with no problem. However, this time I tried to give them the medicated bread and all of them would have nothing to do with it. It wasn't the bread because they ate it plain just fine. (the little thieves). I am wondering if I can give them the medication, valbazine, straight from the bottle down their throats. Is there any harm in doing it that way? Thanks for reading my post and I will consider all answers and hopefully get it taken care of before the real egg laying time is here. All though I never really had a break in egg production during the winter. I am in AZ. so spring is here. Suppose to be 91 by Friday. Thanks again.
