    As usual, the indications on the pack are very ambiguous, and all I have is a coffee scoop or kitchen spoons.
    This is a 4 month old hen with some kind of respiratory problem, very sick and getting worse.
    Any advice please.

    I would first like to say that if your pullet is very sick, terramycin probably won't do the trick. But if that's all you have handy, it's worth a shot.

    Do you have powder or concentrate? I'm guessing powder, since it's usually what feed stores carry.

    For powder: 1 tablespoon per gallon of water for 10-14 days.

    Make sure to use full term.
