    Hello, my flock of 24 has a respiratory illness and I purchased TYLAN Water Soluble Powder for them after researching on this site. I just received it yesterday and am a lil' confused regarding the directions. It states that I'm supposed to mix the entire container with a gallon of water and then mix this concentrated mixture with water, I have a 5 gal. poultry waterer and would like to know just how much of the concentrated mix I'm supposed to put in it before filling it with add'l. water.

    Also, this medicine was $50 for 100 grams and am wondering if I couldn't put just a small amount of the powder inside the waterer then mix with water that way vs. using the entire container in a gallon of water - do the leftovers keep? Should there be leftovers?

    Anyway, if someone out there has done this I would certainly appreciate any and all advice! Thank you all!

    Have a nice Saturday![​IMG]

    Found the answer via Google and here it is in case anyone else ever needs help with it:

    Tylan is water soluble powder containing 100 grams of tylosin tartrate per container. Labeled for chickens and turkeys in the treatment of chronic respiratory disease.
    Dosage for poultry:- 100 grams per 50 gallons of drinking water for 3 days.
    Also widely used for kennel and cattery treatments but not labeled for such use.
    Usual dosage: One teaspoonful per 5 gallons drinking water or 1/4 teaspoon per 100 pounds body weight.

    Is there an egg withdrawal period with this product?

    That's because it gets into the eggs. Just don't eat the eggs or keep them for hatching for the withdrawal period. Do what dawg says - he's the expert!

    Oh I know he is! He has helped me many times with other issues! So the withdrawal period will be for 1 day after the last dose given?

    Yep! One day. You'd be better off using the injectable. Go to your other post and read why.

    I've been reading about Tylan powder for chickens and would like to know what kind of results everyone has had from using it.

    I'm also unsure on the dosage I am wanting to take it down to a gallon of water as I am only treating a small flock and they don't need a large amount
