    Good day. 1 of my chickens is sick with a respiratory problem. She has been sick for 4 days. I've been giving her .5 ml of tylan 50 1 time a day in the back of the neck but I kept reading more help pages and I thought it would be best to up the dose to 2 doses yesterday. She is still wheezing, difficult to breath and a runny nose. I'm thinking about taking her to the vet tomorrow morning because she isn't showing signs of much improvement.

    Welcome to BYC. How is your chicken now? What are all of the symptoms you have seen so far? Tylan 50 dosage is 0.2 ml per pound 3 times daily, or 0.3 ml per pound twice a day if you cannot manage the 3 doses. Give for 3-5 days. Respiratory diseases can be viral, fungal, or bacterial. Tylan will only help if it is bacterial or from mycoplasma (MG.) Here is a good link to read about common diseases and symptoms, and read about infectious bronchitis, mycoplasma gallisepticum, infectious coryza, ILT, and aspergillosis, which as common ones:
