    What are you treating, exactly? If a wound, usually it's 1/2 cc in the breast muscle for a standard breed adult bird, daily for 3-4 days. When I think I'm treating egg yolk peritonitis, I use sometimes 3/4-1 cc since it's do or die with that infection.

    If it's respiratory, penicillin isn't what you'd want.
