Default I have to convert 500 mg into ml's, how do i do this.

Hello, I am new to this forum.

I have to give my chickens a powdered med.
It says to mix 500 mg in a gallon of water, But all i have to measure is a syringe that says ml.

Any one know how i can measure that amount with this?

No, you would have to know the density of the powder to convert from mass to volume.

you could probably take the powder into a vets and they could weigh it out for you. I'm sure there would be a charge for this, but it would be cheaper than overdosing the chooks!
