The LD50 for Amprolium is 5.1 g/kg (single dose)(chicken). What formulation are you using?

OK so just guessing from what you said, you've given them approximately 3x too much for a few days. I think they will be fine, hopefully you are giving the correct dose now. You can supplement them with extra thiamine (vitamin B1), which is the treatment in case of overdose of amprolium. You can add a poultry vitamin premix to their water.
