Why would you? It is much faster acting and more effective when used as directed (as an injectable). GI juices often wreak havoc with meds that are designed as IM drugs. Fortunately, this particular drug can be used as a PO med, but why would you?

What are you using it for? What is the weight range on your birds?

5 day old babies no where to stick them yet. Got them on water soluble now. So far no more deaths. Thinking like E. coli dirty breeder

You may want to post this over in the Hatching Chicks forum. They would know more accurately what weights you are aiming towards. I hate guesstimating weights on newbs because it has been too long since I had babes.

Good luck.

If so how much
You might want to get yourself a kitchen scale and start tracking their weights. Not positive, but I think the oxytetracyline dose is about 50 mg/kg, which for 5 day old chicks is probably about 0.01 ml per chick (note that I wrote 0.01, not 0.1). IMO, chicks this young are way too small to dose correctly with LA200.

Thx Kathy I was losing them so fast I consulted with dr brow. I'm giving them oxy tetracycline 2 tsp in a gallon and his vitamins pro b. It stopped the deaths and I sent 2 off for necropsy.
