    I have a package of oxytetracycline soluable powder

    By my calculations 1/4 teaspoon added to 1 GALLON of water will make a 400 mg mix. . . .

    I use 1 tsp. per gallon of water.... in the amount of water they will consume in 24 hours. Duramycin 10 -- Tetracycline.. it has a few names from what I have seen. (If it's the same drug... Tetracycline). The guy at the feed store told me that... it hasn't hurt them so far.

    For one chicken I mix up a quart... four quarts in a gallon... so.. 1/4 teaspoon in a quart of water. (the small plastic waterer is a quart) -- 4 cups in a quart. 8 ounces in a cup. So... 1/8 teaspoon should be enough in two cups water. Just make a bit more than you need. Change it every 24 hours or if it gets dirty.

    Good luck.
