    Are there no instructions? I'd check for a website also or maybe call a vet for advice.

    This is a month old thread. There is only Tylan 50 and 200, and I would only give it orally in a young chick, not by injection. 1/8-1/4 ml would be a good dosage for a chick, given twice a day for 3-5 days.
