    I have a 4 wk old silkie chick with what appears to be a respiratory problem. A friend of mine gave me some Tylan 50 but it had no directions for dosages for chickens. Can anyone help me with this?

    If it's the powder form of Tylan it's 2ml for 4 litres. Treat for 1-5 days.

    Sunshine: do you give it dry or mixed with water?
