    Ok I am going to get Tylan 50 in just a little bit and I need to know how much to give my chickens. I have silkies that are maybe 3 months old plus adult silkies and I also have 7 month old standard chickens that I also need to treat but have no clue how much to give them. What is the dose for the 3 month old silkies and adult silkies ? Also what is the dose for the 7 month old standard chickens? [​IMG]

    I don't have my dosages on me at the moment, but if you read the label it gives you a dosage for so many pounds.

    You need to divide that down to what your chickens weigh and give that amount.
