    Someone please tell me the dosage for aspirin for my wounded chickens. I have baby aspirin that I can dissolve in their treats or water. I just want to give them some pain relief. but wasn't sure how much to give.

    This is from a reference for poultry solutions:

    Dissolve five (5 grain) aspirin tablets in one gallon of water.

    Offer this solution free-choice to the birds for the duration of an illness. The solution aspirin equivalent to 25 grains/gallon or 324 mg/gallon of drinking water. The dosage rate is about 25 mg/lb body weight per day.​
