    I have a New Hampshire pullet who's wheezing pretty bad, can I use duramycin 10 on her or what else to treat it?

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Duramycin is a great broad spectrum antibiotic and works great on many respiratory ailments. The dosage is 1 tablespoon per gallon of water made new daily. If you have hard water, you will need to use RO or distilled water as the hard water will render the drug fairly useless. Use it for 7 to 14 days depending on severity.

    Good luck and keep us posted!
