    i have some agrimycin (oxytetracycline) in the frige
    left over from my pigs.
    my chickens have been sneezing and i was wondering if they might have an upper respatory infection.
    is it safe to give them this??
    its made for beef cows dairy cows and swine it says 9mm per pound of body weight..

    Oh that's tricky. I'd probably go the pill route because a injection could be very risky.
