Then, based on that, how much of that solution would one give to the different sized birds?

I'm no math wizard as you probably have guessed but I hope I've accomplished it this time.

**Starting with the basics before the math.**

1/4 tsp Corid = 135mg amprolium

1/3 tsp Corid = 180mg amprolium

1/2 tsp Corid = 270mg amprolium

**Dosage = 20mg amprolium per kilogram body weight**

2oz chick = 0.0567kg x 20 = 1.134mg amp needed

7oz chick = 0.19848kg x 20 = 3.969mg amp needed

1lb bird = .4536kg x 20 = 9.072mg amp needed

10lb bird = 4.435kg x 20 = 90.72mg amp needed

**Mix Corid with water to make a suspension and give dosage**

*In this example:*

1/4 tsp (135mg amprolium) in 60ml (1/4c) of water.

135mg divided by 60ml = 2.25mg amprolium per ml/cc

bird wt divided by mg amprolium per ml/cc = dosage amount for the bird

2oz chick = 1.134mg divided by 2.25mg = 0.5 (1/2) ml/cc dose

7oz chick = 3.969mg divided by 2.25mg = 1.75ml/cc dose

1lb bird = 9.072mg divided by 2.25mg = 4ml/cc dose

10lb bird = 90.72mg divided by 2.25 = 40ml/cc dose

**Another way to figure it out with 1/4 tsp, 1/3 tsp, 1/2 tsp**

**2oz chick = 1.134mg amprolium needed**

1/4 tsp Corid = 135mg amprolium divided by 1.134mg needed = 119ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/3 tsp Corid = 180mg amprolium divided by 1.134mg needed = 158ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/2 tsp Corid = 270mg amprolium divided by 1.134mg needed = 238ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

**7oz chick = 3.969mg amprolium needed**

1/4 tsp Corid = 135mg amprolium divided by 3.969mg needed = 34ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/3 tsp Corid = 180mg amprolium divided by 3.969mg needed = 45ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/2 tsp Corid = 270mg amprolium divided by 3.969mg needed = 68ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

**1lb bird = 9.072mg amprolium needed**

1/4 tsp Corid = 135mg amprolium divided by 9.072mg needed = 15ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/3 tsp Corid = 180mg amprolium divided by 9.072mg needed = 20ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/2 tsp Corid = 270mg amprolium divided by 9.072mg needed = 30ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

**10lb bird = 90.72mg amprolium needed**

1/4 tsp Corid = 135mg amprolium divided by 90.72mg needed = 1.5ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/3 tsp Corid = 180mg amprolium divided by 90.72mg needed = 2ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

1/2 tsp Corid = 270mg amprolium divided by 90.72mg needed = 3ml water = 1ml/cc per dose

@casportpony I hope I understood this time and that this is what you were looking for
