    Does anyone know where I can get Tylan or Duramycin? I have a small flock I've kept contained in our coop that several of have just started sneezing. I just introduced two new birds & suspect they are the cause.

    Feed store is best (local).








    These are some of my favorite suppliers (I haven't ordered from randalburkey and farmtek though- just seen the catalog)...not sure which one will have what you need.

    Thank you! I did a google search & called my local feed store. Is the powder form acceptable or should I try to find the liquid?

    I don't know either, only what I have read. I read that Tylan is best for Cronic Respiratory Illness (CRD). If it were me, I would get one that is water soluable though, if they are not seriously ill. I read there are two types of Tylan, water soluable and injectable. I think this one is by prescription only, but not 100% on that.

    No idea on the Duramycin amounts though! If no one answers you soon, try the top search bar for each of these antibiotics though...there should be a ton of info on BYC about both meds if you need it quickly?

    I have the water soluble duramycin 10, for my chicken med kit, and can't for the life of me, remember what the dose is? ( I haven't needed to use it ) So don't want to give you wrong info. I bet it's on this forum somewhere though and a search might help?

    Sorry I couldn't be more help!!!!

    Hope your chickens feel better soon and best of luck!
