    Can someone please give me the dosing instructions for Tylan injectable for my 10 month old pullets? I believe they have Coryza.

    Tylan50 dosage: 1cc for large-fowl, .5ccs for bantams, injected into one side of the breast once daily for 5 days.

    Tylan200 dosage: .5ccs for large-fowl, .2-.3ccs for bantams, injected into one side of the breast once daily for 3-4 days.

    Alternate the side of the breast that you inject into, and use a very small gauge needle, as Tylan tends to irritate the injection area.

    Good luck treating your birds!

    Actually, the correct dosage for Tylan200 for bantams is .1-.2cc, not .2-.3ccs.

    I usually use .3ccs for larger bantams, and .2ccs for smaller bantams. So far, I've had no problems. .1ccs seems like too little, though I suppose it might work for a really small/young bird.

    Why is there such variations in the opinions of the dosing? I gave my chickens a 1/2 cc of the Tylan 50 which is what "Ultimate Fowl" recommended. I hope I'm doing the right thing.

    1 Tylan 200
    2 Tylan 50
    3 Notes
    4 Warning
    Tylan 200

    1/4 cc in breast for 3 consecutive days for adult size birds.
    1/8 cc in breast for 3 consecutive days for bantam sized birds.
    Tylan 50

    1/2 cc in breast for 3 consecutive days for adult sized birds.
    1/4 cc in breast for 3 consecutive days for bantam sized birds.

    Notes

    Make sure you angle the needle so you inject just under the skin, and not deep in the muscle tissue.
    You will need to use a large needle on your syringe due to the solution thickness of Tylan. (20 to 22 gauge needle works best)
    Make sure you inject in a different spot each day.
    Tylan can be purchased at most farm supply stores, over the counter in the cattle section.
    Warning

    Do not eat the eggs after treatment for at least one week after the last injection.

    I'm not sure. [​IMG]I don't remember exactly where I found my dosage information, but I think it was on BYC. I've used the dosages that I recommended, and have never had any problems, only success.
