Just looking into Avitrol usage myself and saw your post... Found the following info on another post if it's any help to you...

Hi all, I've seen avitrol being mentioned for chooks before,
but have read its not actually for chooks, so i contacted
Mavlab who kindly gave me the following response.

Subject: avitrol tabs in vic?

Hi Mavlab,
Its been suggested i try using avitrol tablets for worming my chooks,
( welsummer, light sussex, barnevelder, arucana)
I was wondering who stocks it as a tablet in Victoria?
Also what else do i need to know about worming chooks?

Wayne Humphrys,

Hello Wayne

I will get Shirley in Customer Service to answer your first question (thanks
Shirley!), but I can answer the second.

Firstly, neither Avitrol Plus Syrup nor Avitrol Plus Tablets are licenced
for use in chickens so use in this species is "off label". The reason is
that we do not have residue data available for meat and egg withholding

However, we know in practice that a lot of backyard chicken owners do use
Avitrol Plus on their birds and from the feedback we receive it appears safe
and effective.

The Avitrol Plus tablets are given at a dose rate of 2 tablets per 1kg
bodyweight. The syrup can be given directly to the bird at a dose rate of
4ml per 1 kg bodyweight or put in the drinking water at a rate of 25ml per
1L water.

We advise 2 doses, 14 days apart. Worming every 4-6 months is recommended,
or as your local vet suggests.

A "default" withholding time of 7 days after dosing is advised for the eggs
(and meat if this applies).
