The active ingredient is nye on the same in either product. All depends on what you can get hold off and the numbers involved. I'm lead to believe that getting it into the food requires a vets report / perscription so this could rule the food option out.

If you know of anyone who has sheep, cattle or, if you yourself have a holdings number then you could just buy some panacur and  dispense it via the water. depending on the amount you need is will last in a fridge for a number of years. This is the route I've taken in the past 1ml per bird in a day's drinking water,  and then re dose at the same rate 7-10 days later to kill any eggs left over.

As with any medication, the worst thing for both long term and short term is under dose. Make sure you worm them for  a few days on every treatment to make sure you catch every bird, water based wormer will turn them off it and some will try not to drink it.

We have always found the water based worked best for us. We found the birds always drink but aren’t so keep on eating. 

I have heard of people mixing some black currant juice in the water to make it more palatable for them but I have never done it.
