    Noticed the cut this last night it is much redder and raw looking this moring I wanted to get some antibiotics in the little fellow before all gets worse. Went to the feed store, I normally use a different kind of antibiotic but couldnt find it only Duramycin-10.
    Anyone know the dose per gallon of water?
    Thanks, PQ

    I couldnt find the ointment we normally use only power. It is not sick only a bad infected looking cut.

    it is basically terrmycin
    give 2 tsp per gallon and remake the medicated water ebery 8 hrs
    they will tell you longer but your wasting the birds health by not making it every 8 hrs

    clean the wound and put neomycin salve on it and lock the bird up in a place where the other birds can't pick his wound

    hopefully you can keep the flies off his wound so he doesn't get maggots

    may I suggest you contact Dmiths poultry supplies for a stronger medication

    A NOTE on terramycin

    keep in air tight dark jar in frig after opening the sack
    terramycin is destryed by heat, air and sun lite
