    I am hoping it doesn't get to the injections if the bread method works. She sounds just awful down there but I guess I just have to wait and hope the tylan kicks in overnight! Nothing more I can do. Thanks again for the help.

    The tylan did the trick for both hens who were sick. They both received the injections and after about 3 days the gurgling subsided and they recovered! If you have a gurgler I would definitely segregate her and get her on the antibiotics immediately. Is it just one for now?

    Yes just one hen, I've separated her from the flock. She seems to be resting easy and a bit less gurgley, hoping I don't have to use Tylan.

    Keep a close eye. Mine went down fast. At least she's separated and won't infect anyone else. I was told to completely clean the coop to make sure no infection was still there. Was NOT an easy task and I at least had above freezing weather. I don't know if it's even possible for you but a suggestion if she is indeed sick to keep the others safe. I hope she gets better!

    The difference is potency in the dosages. If I were to use it, I'd use the tylan 50 if available. Here's a link:

    Tylan 50 has 50 mg of tylosin in each ml or cc, where Tylan 200 has four times as much or 200mg per ml/cc. Many feel that tylan 200 can be damaging to the breast muscle where it is injected.

    How much does he weigh? If he were mine I would give .6cc - .8cc per 2.2 pounds (30-40mg/kg).

    Disclaimer: I have only used Tylan 50 once and the amount I used was based on this info in Plumb's Veterinary Drug Handbook:
