An American perspective that explains residues and withdrawal periods quite well.

I use Panacur 25 at the rate of 1ml/1 kg liveweight. I calculate liveweight per pen, put that dose in a dog bowl (weighted, non tippable) and then dilute it to 1:2 or thereabouts. Then get some bread, tear it into small bits and add to the bowl until all the med has been absorbed. Then add the bowl to the pen and stand back. All gone in a minute or 2. No withholding water, no hoping they drink their dose. Much easier than dosing each bird with tablet.
