    I have a sick chicken, and while trying to medicate with powdered duramycin, I found a lot of misinformation about dosages.

    I just wanted to give correct dosages for this particular medication and also remind people:

    OUNCES ARE NOT THE SAME AS FLUID OUNCES!


    The bag I got said to medicate with 400-800 mg per gallon of water, so after we checked and double-checked our measurements, that equals just about 2 TEASPOONS (not leveled off) per gallon.

    Hope this is helpful!

    The measurements we did were for about 500-600 mg per gallon. [​IMG]
