I'm not sure what the dosage is for chickens. Do a search on BYC for "Tylan dosage" or "Tylan dose". If you haven't updated by the time I get back, I will see if I can find out.

The only thing I know to use for these ailments is Tylan. Those illnesses are resistant to most antibiotics, so that probably won't work. Tractor Supply usually has the Tylan. It is labeled for cattle or swine. It is my understanding you give 1/2 - 1 cc to a chicken (I would say only 1/2 for a bantam). Do you have a Tractor Supply?
