    The only dosage on the package is to make 50 gallons! I don't need to make 50 gallons. I have a small flock of free rangers and need to do 1-2 gallons at a time. HOW do I measure out enough?

    I know that 1/2 3/4 teaspoon of Corid Powder weighs about 2.268 grams, so does corn starch... Does it look like the bottle/package contains 50 1/2 teaspoons, 50 teaspoons or 50 tablespoons?

    Does the powder feel like corn starch or sugar?

    If you had a gram scale it would be easy, you'd measure out 2 grams and be done.

    With Duramycin 10 powder, 1/2 teaspoon weighs about 2.42 grams, so if I had to guess *and* you thought there were 50 1/2 teaspoons in the container, I'd say the dose is ~1/2 teaspoon per gallon. Bottom line, you need 1/50 of the package. Sure would be easy if they started putting doses for gallons on the packages, lol.

    Please let us know what you find out, you aren't the first to ask this about Tylosin powder.

    This is the same as Tylan Soluble Powder, and the dose is 1/2 tsp per gallon. Some sources here on BYC say 1 tsp or 1/4 tsp, but I figured it out the other day for another poster. 100 GM divided by 50 gallons is 2 Gm per gallon. I don't have a gram scale, but 5 grams roughly equals 1 teaspoonful, so there should be 2.5 Gm in 1/2 tsp. That is close enough to 2 gm, or you can use just shy of 1/2 tsp.

    Heres what I did, not sure if I got it exact but I'm not good with conversions etc. I kept cutting everything in half. 100 grams= 50 gallons
    50 grams=25 gallons
    25 grams=12.5 gallons
    12.5 grams=6.25 gallons
    6.25 grams=3.125 gallons
    3.125 grams=1.56 gallons
    1.56 grams=.78 gallons

    3.125 grams=.63 tsp
    1.56 grams=.32 tsp

    Since that gave me a little over and a little under a gallon I did more math and YES this took me awhile and I may still be wrong hahaha!

    I need to get something between the 3.125 g and 1.56 gram which would be 2.34
    2.34 grams=1.17 gallons. Close enough right?
    2.34 grams=.47 tsp...so basically 1/2 tsp.
