    Does anyone have any step by step photos of how to inject tylan-50? Or do you give it to them orally? If orally, how much for each bird and for chicks??? Thank you.

    Quote:Call dr. brown the chicken dr. Ist state vet supply..I think.... He has a formula that is better than Tylan for CRD. I think it is tetracycline and erithromyicin (SP?) 1 tsp of tetra and 2 erithro in their drinking water for 14 days....egg withdrawal pertains to these antibiotics and Tylan. Someone else might have a better idea. Hope that helps. Good luck!

    Quote:Dawg, you are a fountain of knowledge! The only bummer with injecting is the possible damage to the muscle tissue. My vet suggested Tylan 200 orally....it's concentrated so they have to take less. He also stated Tylan is a broad spectrum and should be used as a last resort. It's really bitter tasting given orally. I would have a fruit treat ready to chase it or you can use the strawberry daquiri mix (without alcohol:D ). It just helps take the bitterness away. Just a suggestion if you choose to go with the Tylan instead of the others.
