    Has anyone used this on sick birds. I know it will dissolve in water. It is the only penicillin I can find to put in their water. I know the question is going to be asked why do I want to do this. I have some red sexlinks and game chickens in a pen by their self. Well a couple started sneezing. So I treated them with other antibiotics for about a week no progress. A month ago I had smoke get in there pin but they cleared up. So last night I noticed I got a extra sex link. Wow I know I'm not crazy so I ask the kids they say no daddy your right we do got a new one. O my. I believe just I thought someone gave it to me when I was not home knowing I would take care of her.
