    Depends on the strength of Tylan you bought? They need to consume 60 mg per pound per day to be most effective in the one I have. Should have poultry dosing instructions for you on the lable,I think

    Steve,
    I have been using the injectable at 1 ml per bird on my turkeys and peafowl. I would like to use this too, but as I seen in another post, I dont need to mix the entire, high dollar container at once.
    I know on small ratios, it would pretty much be 2 grams per gallon, but I dont have a gram counter!! LOL
    How much do you use per gallon, not being mixed in this stock solution?

    Quote:I use 2 semi heaping teaspoons per 5 gallons - 2 grams = .421 teaspoons. you could use a 1/2 teaspoon per gallon.
