    I know people mention giving around 1/2-1cc of the injectable orally bird by bird, but is it possible to dose an entire flock with it by putting it in their water like you can with Baytril? Just something I'm curious about in case it ever comes up because I'd hate having to catch each individual bird to treat if the situation arose.

    No. Injecting is most effective, but can be given orally and not in water. However you can purchase tylan soluable powder to be mixed in water.
    Keep in mind that sick birds dont drink much if at all, and if they do, it's usually not enough to be effective.
