    I would try giving it orally, a drop or two at a time so as not to choke it. Pull down on the wattles with one hand, put a drop or two in the beak, let loose of the wattles for it to swallow, and repeat.Giving an injection into the breast of a bantam can be a little risky. Any injection into the breast muscle should only be given a 1/4 inch deep. Tylan dosage is 1/4 ml for a silkie twice a day for 5 days.

    Thanks. If it can be given orally I'd prefer that! 1/4 a ml twice a day... thanks!
