Also when you get the chips, pick up a small bottle of Bovidr Labs Poultry Nutri-Drench. Give each chick 1 or 2 drops orally. Put 2-3 ml per gallon in their water for the next 2 weeks to get them off to a strong start. My solution looks like very weak tea. I have used these products for over a decade on my collies and poultry. Just excellent. The Bovidr Labs formulas do not need to be digested. They mainline directly into the bloodstream, measurable in 30 minutes with 99% utilization, all natural, created by a USA cattle breeder. http://www.nutridrench.com This will quickly give your chicks the energy they need to jumpstart their immune and G.I. tracts. If they are out of the Poultry Formula, you can also use the Goat formula. Just make sure to use the poultry instructions above. Last season I raised 42 Light Sussex on the Goat Formula , using the Poultry instructions. No deaths, no sickness, just 42 robust chicks.
