CORRECTION: ELECTROLYTE FORMULA

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I posted several days ago regarding my 6 week old chicks.  The temp got up to 89*, and they were stumbling and weak.  I mixed up some electroylyte solution.  Within 1/2 hour, they were noticeably better.  I posted the recipe, but left out one important ingredient.  So:  here's a correction:  

 

1/2 C hot H2O

2 1/2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp (scant) salt

1/2 tsp (scant) baking soda

1 tsp flavored Jello              Mix all ingredients well.  Then add:  

 

3 1/2 C cold H2O 

 

I posted correction on the thread, but... just in case someone reads my original post, and misses the correction, I'm hoping this will prevent any mistakes!!!

Thanks for the updated recipe, it's something everyone should write down in case they ever need it.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Electrolytes.  If I offer an electrolyte mix, I always offer it IN ADDITION to plain water.
