    I had a dog attack my cockeral and i had to inject him with antibiotics. My local feed store has been a blessing to me as they were able to tell me what type of antibiotics to use and what gauge needle to use and where. Did your chooks make it? If you still need help please let me know?

    Sorry I have not been on for ages...Well I had one die but the other two lived to tell the tale. I had a needle but I also had some in a bottle which you put ibnto water, I just really needed to get something into them ASAP.

    But Maimie, my silkie bantam cross didint make it, I had to take her to the vets they tried everytihng but she wernt responding so they put her to sleep.
    Its cost £50 altogeather more than i broguth her for in the first place.

    Never mind poor girl is in chicken heaven now running around with the rest of the chooks up there.

    Thanks for your help though :)

    It is done between the shoulder blades behind the neck, much the same as doing kittens. Best to use an injector gun for speed and effectiveness.
