    I believe my chickens have coryza or mg. Right now they are on tetracyline for five days. I live in Alberta Canada and have looked into getting Tylan from Jeffers,, but since it is a prescription drug here they can't ship it to me. My Veternarian has capsules in different sizes for dogs and bees (sorry don't know what size exactly at the moment) b she can sell me them and I'm thinking I could then mix them into their water. The problem is that I don't know the dose that I'm suppose to give them and she doesn't know either. Can anyone help me out with this??

    thank you so much in advance

    I would say it would go by lbs for the pills
    for animals
    just ask her what amt goes per lb?

    but go on google and just ask the question
    what amt of tylan for chickens
    here is what I found and remember using it for chickens

    I read it's 1/4 cc for a 2 lb. chicken for Tylan 50. My 8 lb roo got 1/2 cc for a week, though, so maybe you can interpret from there. ... - Cached - Similar
