    I have only one bird - my little Erik, on the photo - who has breathing problems. So, I don't want to medicate the whole flock by adding Tylan to their water. I thought of giving him the medicine directly into his beak, but for that I need to find the right dosage for his weight (2,250 Kg). Can someone please help me with this?? Erik and I, both, will be very grateful!!!

    .2cc per pound of tylan 50 injected into the breast. Intramuscular.

    I am assuming that you're kilogram size is wrong because that chicken weighs over 4000 pounds :lau

    Thank you for your reply minihorse927. His weight is 2 kg and 250 grams. And the Tylan I have for him is to be ingested (with a bit of water), not injected. I have no access to the injections, sadly...

    1tsp per gallon is the proper dosage for the powder. I don't have a drench solution dosage though.
