    My hen has a respiratory disease.
    I'm going to use TYLAN SOLUBLE & want to do know the dosage for one single chicken?
    I'm going to order the product tonight, & would really love to find out ASAP!

    Most people use 1/2 to 1 tsp per gallon, so you could use a smaller amount such as 1/4 tsp per quart/liter. Add the water to the powder, not the water to the powder, or it will not mix properly. Prepare a fresh solution each day. Treat for 5 days. You can also use Tylan 50 injectable, and give it orally--1 ml daily by mouth to each chicken. You will need to purchase syringes and needles, but the injectable is less cost than Tylan Soluble. It can be used orally or as an injection.

    x2. Dosage is 1 teaspoon per gallon of water....1/2 teaspoon per half gallon of water. There's a one day slaughter withdrawal period.

    I would use the inject-able to give orally, but I've read when continued to be given orally it destroys the throat of the chicken?

    I have never heard that. The injectable given into muscle can be irritating to the muscle tissue, though.

    Really? Alright well that's good!
    I heard someone say it in a YouTube video with them unpacking the product.

    Now would you say the injectable is better then the soluble kind?
    Which would you suggest?

    Injecting is always better since sick birds wont drink, or if they do drink, it's not enough to be effective. As always, I recommend that birds with respiratory diseases be culled. If they survive, they will always be carriers for life, infect healthy birds, and will relapse in times of stress.
    Here's a link for injecting tylan, dosages etc...
