    One of my Pea hens was acting lethargic yesterday and is down this morning.
    I am wanting to give her some tylan 200 but need the dosage/ how many and how far apart and injection site before it is too late as i found a very small wound on her and am thinking she has an an infection.

    Thanks for the help

    You might also want to treat for coccidiosis-it's very common.

    Autopsy done and i found absolutly nothing wrong inside or out, i took photos but don't want to post them unless you all would like to see what things looked like.
    Liver, heart, crop. gizzard, intestins all looked healthy and normal.
    Breast and other body parts were meaty not skinny at all.
    No worms or parasites .
    Throat ,eyes,,and mouth look normal
    Vent was clean no sign of diaherra.
    Gizzard was full of all kinds of free range stuff like seeds grasses stones and such and did not have any off smell looked very healthy
    No bruises and the very small wound on her head was just a scratch like from a sticker bush.

    Totally at a loss as to why she died [​IMG]
