More conversions needed to get from ounces and pounds to mg/g/kg:

1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (g) = 1000000 milligrams (mg) ( *multiply* kilograms by 1,000 to get grams or *multiply* 1,000,000 to get milligrams)

1 ounce (oz) = 28349.52 mg or 28.34952 g or 0.02835 kg (*divide* 28349.52 milligrams by 1,000 to get grams or *divide* by 1,000,000 to get kilograms)

1 pound (lb) = 16 oz

Lets first calculate bird weight in kilograms using the formulas above:

2 ounce chick = 0.02835 kg x 2 oz = **0.056 kg**

7 ounce chick = 0.02835 kg x 200 oz = **0.19845 kg**

1 pound bird (1 lb is 16 oz) = 0.02835 kg x 16 oz = **0.4536 kg**

10 pound bird (10 lb x 16 oz = 160 oz) = 0.02835 kg x 160 oz = **4.536 kg**

Now for the amprolium at 20 mg per kilogram of bird. Easy... now you just multiply 20 times the bird weight in kilograms:

2 ounce chick = 20mg x 0.056 kg = **1.12 mg** of amprolium

7 ounce chick = 20mg x 0.19845 kg = **3.969 mg **of amprolium

1 pound bird = 20mg x .4536 kg = **9.072 mg **of amprolium

10 pound bird = 20mg x 4.536 kg = **90.72 mg** of amprolium
