    Can anyone please help me? I am trying to give my chickens lincomycin hydrochrolide, the water soluble kind.......Can anyone tell me how much to mix with 1 gallon of water (ex: 1/2 teaspoon, etc)? I only have 2 chickens so making the whole package would be a huge waste.

    Quote:Lincomycin hydrochloride soluable powder dosage is 64mg per gallon of water. Administer for 7 days, change it out daily. It is for necrotic enteritis, you should see improvement in 24-48 hours. There is no withdrawal.
