What kind of antibiotics are there that can be given to a chicken?
A lot of people swear by terramycin as a broad spectrum antibiotic. Pennicillin is another that comes either as a shot or a powder that is added to their drinking water.
This site has a good variety of medications: http://www.jefferspet.com/antibiotics-and-sulfas/camid/LIV/cc/3502/c2c/sc/
What are you treating for? Any antibiotic should be specific to a disease or symptom set.
This site has useful information on drugs/antibiotics used for specific diseases in poultry:
She has a fever and is being very sluggish, falling down and breathing very heavily.
How do you know if a chicken has a fever?? Good luck. I hope your chicken is better soon.
Is penicillin good for a chicken with a cold? any recommendations?
Chickens dont get colds, they get a specific disease which requires specific medication. Respiratory diseases spread to other birds, surviving birds are carriers for life and it's best to cull sick birds.
Penicillin is geared more in treating serious bacterial infections from injuries, staph infections but not respiratory diseases.
