    I am fairly new to chickens. Mine have come down witha upper respitory infection. I have read to use Tylon 50 as a injectable. I could only find Tylon50 for catle/swine. Can I use this on my hens? If so what amount for a injection. :/

    Tylan 50 injection for cattle is what you need--it is also used to treat chickens for respiratory diseases. For standard chickens 1/2-1 ml daily for 3 days injected into a different side of the breast muscle each day. It can be given orally for 5 days also. Use 1/4 ml for bantams.
