    Desert Rooster is correct. Sulmet can be used to treat coryza as well as gallimycin, aureomycin...soluables mixed in water. How do you know if it's coryza? You can tell if it's coryza if there's a foul odor about the nostrils and/or head area on your silkies. No smelly odor means it's something else, possibly mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG.) Tylan 50 injectable can be used to treat MG, but not coryza...it would be most likely be ineffective. If in fact it's MG, it would be best to treat your silkies with denagard. Denagard will clear it up and there's no resistance nor withdrawal. You will have to give them a preventative dose of denagard once a month. It would be better than injecting them with tylan in which the disease will eventually build resistance to the tylan, then you'd have to use something more powerful. As I stated, there's NO resistance to denagard and a bottle of it will last you a long time. Type "denagard" in the BYC search box and read up on it if you wish. If it's coryza, use sulmet and follow the directions on the bottle or package. Sulmet is harsh on their system and I recommend that you feed them scrambled egg mixed with buttermilk (not yogurt) during the sulmet treatment and a few days after treatment. Do not mix anything else in the sulmet treated water.

    When I use tylan 50 I use .25 cc bantam and .5 for standard in the back of neck or breast 3-5 days. I have used it for respitory issues only.

    Tylan 50 injection dosage is 0.1 cc/ml per pound. Once a day x 3 days. Very good for Mycoplasma infections.

    Edited because I just read Dawg's post. Denegard sounds great...gonna check it out. No withdrawal is always a good thing!!

    Did a little reading and Denagard is getting some really good reviews. Nice that you can treat everyone at once in drinking water. I may try some.
