go to walmart the pharmacist may be able to give you one of the looks like eyedropper that has ML measurements. liter is about a quart, look at a water/soda bottle and it will give you a conversion

MD, that's the easy way out!

5ml/1L x 1tsp/4.9ml x 3.79L/1gal = 3.87 tsp/gal

or 4 quarts to a gallon thus .966 or about 1 tsp/quart.

Most meds are pretty forgiving so just plop in about 1 tsp/quart in the chick waterer. Just keep it changed at least once a day.

THANKS GUYS - Who needs google when I have you all.

Actually, to convert I just type in "liters per gallon" and it gives in bold : 1 US gallon = 3.7854118 liters

One less click!
