Ok, can I keep doing vitamins while using it, can the other chick drink it, and how long should I use it?

It sounded confusing how you do the doses, but sure, I'd like to learn.

Put only tetracyline in the water because it will interact with some minerals. Do you have a RO filter on your house water?

When your package comes, measure out the number of tablespoons in it. I'll go into more detail about calculating the dose when I can get on a real computer.

Yes, we have a reverse osmosis filter. We ordered the Duramycin 10 off of Amazon, and it should get here on the 9th. How long should I use it for? Can I still use Apple cider vinegar in her water? It is a natural remedy that kills bacteria and illnesses, and keeps the water clean. It even prevents sickness in humans and other things like cancer if taken every day. Coconut oil does the same thing.

Use your just RO water. I doubt ACV will affect it's efficacy, but too many things in the water might discourage her from drinking enough.

As for days on it? Not really sure... See if what the package says when you get it.

Ok, I'll do that.

One more of my probably annoying questions (I'm known for asking lots of questions lol). Is it ok if Thalia's other chick friend can drink it too?

Would be best to medicate only sick ones, but if separating them will cause stress, treat both.

Kathy, guess what?

Thalia opened up her eye!!!!!!!!!! She looks around and some of the swelling has gone down!!! The coconut oil is a miracle worker! I've been using that on her eye twice a day for 3 days, and I've been giving it to her straight in the mouth too. It also got rid of the other chick's pasty but with just 1 application! I'm still going to continue the saline and oil until her eye looks completely normal.
