    I have one POL pullet that is sneezing this morning. I have Gallimycin-100 on hand. It's concentration is 100mg/mL. The directions on the back are for bovine (4mL/100lb body weight). I'd like to know what we give to chickens...never had to inject for an illness in my flock before.

    I just received an order from Twin City Poultry and they sent a list of all meds and how much to give, so they say for Gallimycin 1/2 tablet for 3to5 days only, with a note to wet the tablet before giving to fowl do not eat eggs for 16 days.. if you have liquid I can't help you with that. Hope your little pullet gets better fast..

    Quote:Gallimycin 100 injectable is 1/4cc in the breast for 3-5 days.
    Gallimycin water soluable is 2 grams per gallon of drinking water for 5 days. If it's the soluable for one hen, you can cut the dosage in halves; 1 gram per 1/2 gallon....1/2 gram per 1 quart of water. Withdrawal is 24 hours. http://www.cfo.on.ca/_pdfs/PoultryWithdrawalTimeChart-Mar30-07.pdf

    Thanks, y'all.

    So, it's basically the same dosing as for bovine -- because if you do the math & you have a 4-5lb chicken, that's about 1/4 mL (cc). Great!!
