    I am having a problem with my chickens from CRD & was wondering if I needed to worry about my turkeys or waterfoul getting it. If so, can I use the same medication. I am giving my chickens 1/2 cc injection of vetrimycin (same thing as LS200) in their breast once a day for 5 days.

    AFAIK waterfowl can get Mycoplasmosis. But, I wouldn't want to advise how to treat waterfowl versus poultry. You'd best speak with a vet or google the subject and read extensively. Some chicken medicines are toxic to waterfowl.
