    Tylan should be given twice a day for 3-5 days, 1 ml or cc per every 5 pounds. The Injectable can be given orally or by injection. Withdrawal for eggs is 1 day for oral use, and 1 week for injectable use. Only birds who are showing symptoms need to be treated, and I would separate the two from the others.

    You did not describe the symptoms you are seeing. There are 5-6 common respiratory diseases in chickens, and some are caused by viruses, bacteria and mycoplasma, and fungus. Only bacterial and mycoplasma will respind to antibiotics, but secondary infections may be helped. Testing or a description of symptoms may help to know which one you are treating.

    Could the one with diarrhea have coccidiosis? Is there any blood in her poop? Corid in the water can treat coccidiosis. Symptoms are lethargy, puffed up or hunched posture, being too weak to stand, not eating, and runny poops. Probiotic plain yogurt may help with diarrhea if you can feed her a bit. Tube feeding is an option if you want to learn how. There is a good thread called "go team tube feeding" which explains how and has videos.
