Ive purchased tylan 50 and have been giving .5 ml to each silkie and about .25 to the tiny bantams. Most have responded well luckily but ive also lost 2 bantams. They were already really sick by the time i noticed the infection. About 10 days after purchase new birds
I also have been giving oxytetracycline powdwr in their water also but at a lower concentration. The packets call for 2.5 tablespoons per gallon. I administered solution with just 1 tablespoon. I figured since they are getting the full dose of tylan 50 orally. It might be too much with the full strength of oxytetracycline
Any thoughts on this???? Anyone ever encounter this antibiotics combo?
I will continue the meds like this:
tylan for 5 days with the oxytetracycline for 5 days plus two extra days of solely oxytetracycline. To ensure i wipe out any questions of disease in their systems. Then of couse follow up with vitamins and electrolytes powder in their water for 7 days
Anyone have any idea when its safe to consume their eggs again??? And when would it be safe to introduce the new cochins amongst the loft. As they are all on the same medicine routine.
Also thoughts on the medicine combo. Any help of comments would greatly be appreciated
