    Went to the vet looking for some tylan for my birds. They did not have it and sent me to a feed store guy that should have it. So after 50 miles of driving today he did not have it also. He did have this stuff called DURAMYCIN-10. Now all i can find is people saying do NOT use it for laying hens and others are saying its a 21 day withdrawl from eggs. Anyone here use this stuff and how well did it work.

    Tylan 50 injectable can be found in the cattle section at the feed store. It is more powerful than duramycin and doesnt have a withdrawal period. The tylan soluable powder has a one day withdrawal. The injectable can be given orally as well as injected. Orally, the dosage is 1/2cc once a day for standard size and 1/4cc for smaller birds for 5 days. If injected, it is administered into the breast for 3 days. Same dosage, alternate breasts each day in a different spot. Here's a link where you can order tylan 50 injectable. Given orally, you should see improvement in about 4 days.
