    Hello, I am needing to give my chicken a shot of Tylan. I have tried giving it orally, but am not seeing results. I have heard that when you inject it, you will see results faster. Does anyone have advice on giving chickens shots? I have never one it before. Thanks

    I've had to do penicillan in my chicks before and injected into the breast. I think that is the easiest spot. You almost don't want to look, I was half squinting, while holding chicken, while injecting.

    Speaking of ThreeHorses (Nathalie), where is she now? I'm hoping she's writing a book on chicken health and care!

    In the breast is the best
