    Happy Friday morning folks! I have a question about injectable penicillin. I was recently told to try "injectable penicillin" for a sick bird and I was wondering where I could purchase some. I tried my local co-op store and they do not carry it. Should I try online and if so, what brand should I look for? My lady has a swollen abdomen and I've been trying to rule out things such as egg bound, internal layer, ascities, etc, etc. The good new is that she recently laid an egg, however she still swollen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Quote:Go to Jefferslivestock.com and type in "injectable penicillin" in the search box. You can order it online or call them.
    The directions for use are at this link...scroll down to,"Using penicillin G procaine for poultry." http://backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=352701
