    hi folks, I need to treat one chicken (MG) with denagard, and i dont want to put it in everybody's water. Does anybody know if there's a more direct dose of denagard that maybe i can put in her morning oatmeal? as in administer it to her only directly?

    If one has it then they all have it unfortunately. [​IMG]

    Are you sure it's MG? Highlander is more than likely correct. If you have MG in your flock, most likely all them are carriers.

    yes, that's true. but one of them shows no symptoms at all besides a very occasional sneeze. is it still worth treating all of them? i hear it's better not to treat ones that don't show strong symptoms so they can develop their own immunity.

    Also for denagard, does it matter that the birds are different sizes (some are true bantams?). The dosage i've heard is 16cc/ml per gallon of water. will that work for all sizes of birds? (they are pullets of different sizes).

    Quote:yes i'm sure it's MG. we had a necropsy one of our our other birds who showed these symptoms, and unfortunately, it is MG.

    If it's MG, I'd put it in the water for everyone. Smaller birds will drink less water than big birds, so I think the dose would work itself out that way. [​IMG] I've heard it's bitter, so you might want to add some Karo syrup!
