    I would like to know ...how to "individually" worm chickens..I don't want to blend it in their water as they may not get enough......

    treatment such as ....gapeworms or other worm types...
    I heard of using valbezen and Ivomac ....and when can you eat the eggs again?

    We worm all of our chickens with the Ivomec. It's easier because that's what I use for our goats so we always have it on hand. It also works good for any external parasites on chickens. We give 6 to 7 drops orally for adult sized chickens and 4 to 5 drops orally for bantam chickens. We don't eat the eggs for a week after worming. After they lay 5 eggs we start to eat them again. :)
