    I Copper bolus mine after weaning. This first dose, I give each kid 1 - "00" size bolus. Then when I bolus again in 6 months, I dose according to weight.

    We waited until ours showed signs of needing it. They were six months old.

    :yeahthat I wait until I start seeing signs of needing it. I've done some at 3 mo. and some at 6-7 mo., so it just depends on the kid. Since usually by 3 mo. old all of kids are clipped, it's easy to see the eye rings and the hair condition. Not the scraggly baby coat.
