My pet chicken is ill .
She is lethargic not eating a lot,hanging around under the heat lamp more than usual and this AM I noticed bloody stools. She IS thirsty.She will eat treats like bread and lettuce. She is 4 years old and NOT a layer as she has not layed eggs for two years now. And she is moulting.
I am not going to take her to the vet (sorry, but she is only a chicken, not like my cats or horses and I have to be reasonable with my animal budget) .
So I bought some poultry powdered tetracyclene ,figure it can't hurt, but the instructions are for mixing many gallons. I only need to make a pint or so at a time. It says 400 Milligrams for a gallon of water . Does anyone have any idea in teaspoons etc how to measure that small an amount?
How many mg's in a ML in your particular concentration?
I am not sure . It says "each pound contains 25g of tetracyclene hydrochloride activity. This packet contains 10g" (6.5 ounces)
This packet will make 100 gallons containing 100mg of tetracyclene hydrochloride, or 12.5 gallons containing 800mg.
It says "for turkeys use at a drug level of tetracyclene per gallon to provide 25mg per pound of body weight per day in divided doses."
