Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced antibiotic to give to hens with respritory infections?

Tylan 50.

 

Culling them would be cheaper in the long run.  More effective at arresting the spread of the CRD, too.

I'd go with the Tylan 50 injectable. The dosage is 1/2 cc for large birds, 1/4 cc for smaller/bantams. I think it goes for around $11-$12 at Tractor Supply. I just got some there last week. Not sure on egg withdrawal, as I was giving it to my rooster, but I'd imagine somewhere in the 14 day range.

 

ETA: dose for 3-5 days if injecting or 5-7 if given orally

You don't want to dilute the Tylan. You can get an oral syringe and dose them by mouth.
