Greg, I have been doing the same thing today. I used ivomec this time. But I do use the goat wormer also. I wormed and sprayed around 30 cockerels today. It was a good day. I enjoy working with the birds and I actually found a couple that had some potential.

How do you use the IVOMEC and how much per bird?

Injectable is orally on chickens and pour on goes under vent. Make sure it's plain ivomec and not ivomec plus.

How much of the ivomec do you use on one bird.

5 drops for a bantam? sounds very extreme. I believe 1 drop will do.
We use Ivomec for our goats and dogs, have for years with no problems.

If you raise very many birds I can't imagine giving individual doses of anything. We use Levamisole in the water and it works very good

i havent used ivomec in years , found there was too many problems with it , if you use a 1/2 cc insulin needle 5 drops is not much , what i use works great , have used it for years , just when i got into bantams , i was told to give it that way , on round worms all chickens have the same size worms and the same number of worms regardless of size , i used to talk with all of the docs at salisbury , merck and the other manufactuers , really i doubt that they would give info out today , but if ivomec works for you then thats what i would go with , just thought id help by telling , to put it on the tongue instead of dropping it down the throat raven
