    I received medistatin 400,000 in per gram in a powder (nystatin) and would like to use it as a liquid to treat vent fleet in my bantum hen.

    The directions say for chicks mix 1 gm to 20 ml of water and dose 1 ml per 100g body weight twice daily.

    Since I have nothing to weigh metric does anybody know what weight and dilution for a 1-2 lb bantum hen at this powder strength?
