I have 8 chickens, one of which has scaly leg. I have Moxidectin Plus to dose my flock with but the weather here will be 35-40 C this week. Should I wait until they are less stressed by the heat before I treat them? Also how long is the withholding period for eating the eggs?
Thanks

Yes, I'd wait until the temperature has gone down a bit, if possible.
The recommended withholding period for Moxidectin plus is 14 days but some people only withhold for a week and others don't withhold at all. Either way, I've never heard of any ill effects.
Personally, I withhold for about 10-14 days, boil the withheld eggs and feed them back to the chooks or feed some to the dogs.

Yes, that's not a problem. Assuming you have the water soluble Moxidectin, you just need to make sure that the broody will drink enough or treat her individually.
