    IM in a bird typically goes into the breast meat. What are you using and do you have the proper dosage? When you put the needle into the meat, slowly draw back to make sure you don't get blood. If nothing happens, you should be in a good spot.

    According to First State Vet instructions, Tylan 50 goes just under the skin in the back of the neck.
