    I wormed my flock with Ivermectin pour on on March 16th. A few days later while scraping the poop under the roost I found a poop that had a large dead round worm in it. Is this treatment good for now or do I need to repeat it at 10 days? I normally worm them spring and fall but have never repeated a dose.

    I strongly suggest that you reworm your birds with safeguard liquid goat wormer or valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer. Ivermectin pour on isnt very effective eliminating poultry worms.

    I have wazine 17 already as I usually rotate them. Could I use that instead of buying a third wormer?
