    all I have is a teaspoon to measure with, and the back of the bag says 200mg per gallon of water. How many teaspoons is that???? I seem to remember 1/2 tsp being equal, but I don't remember. Thanks!!!

    All I have ever read indicates that one tsp is the amount you will need but do not quote me on that as I do not have a reliable resource link for you on that...pm silkie chicken....she might know for sure but tell her the exact name of the product you are using.

    200 milligrams = .007054792 ounce = .04232875 teaspoon

    I'd think of it as being 1/25th of a teaspoon.
