    Tylan 50 injectable for a few days. My chicks had eyes swollen shut with goop, nose discharge and they gasp. I have given them the injectable in the back of the neck 2 days and they are looking good and not gasping now. I hear you can put it down their throat too. I got it at the feed store. Its for cattle. Good luck!

    I have read several posts where they are all different amounts but my vet said .25 cc. I am giving it every 12 hours for 3 to 5 days. Might ask other folks on what they give??
