Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced antibiotic to give to hens with respritory infections?
Culling them would be cheaper in the long run. More effective at arresting the spread of the CRD, too.
ok, thanks, i couldn't do that im not that kind of person, whats the dose? how long for? and how long is egg with drawl?
what about baytril or baytrol?
I'd go with the Tylan 50 injectable. The dosage is 1/2 cc for large birds, 1/4 cc for smaller/bantams. I think it goes for around $11-$12 at Tractor Supply. I just got some there last week. Not sure on egg withdrawal, as I was giving it to my rooster, but I'd imagine somewhere in the 14 day range.
ETA: dose for 3-5 days if injecting or 5-7 if given orally
Egg withdraw 14 days after last dose of medicine.
i would not have a clue how to inject a hen! id end up killing her!, what about the tylan thats out in water? what about the dosage and egg withdrawl for that?
You don't want to dilute the Tylan. You can get an oral syringe and dose them by mouth.
i would much prefer to dose them by mouth than injection or water, but i thaught it cant be done by mouth
would this stuff work? its says treats respritory problems
