    Hi, I'm look for tylan because my chicken has bubbles in her eye and it's not healing with saline rinses and vetricyn.. Please help, I've been trying to solve this for a month! I just need a small quantity and all I'm finding is giant bottles. Thanks.

    You can buy it at like tractor supply. It is a huge bottle, I know. I have an unopened bottle here at the house that I ordered for a rooster's ear infection, but never used. It was expensive, and now it's just gonna go bad sitting on the shelf

    Most people, rather than buy the $55 and up bottle of Tylan Soluble Powder, get Tylan 50 injectable with a few syringes and 18 or 20 gauge needles. Then give a 5 lb chicken 1 ml of that orally twice a day for 5 days. If she weighs less, five her 1/2 ml or cc. Tylan 50 was around $14 dollars the last time I looked.

    Thank you. I found some at tractor supply and injected her when I got home. I really want this to work. She's been sick for a while and I have been trying many things to get her eye back to normal.
