Nutri-Drench for poultry vs goat/sheep...different?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've a question about Nutri Drench for Poultry.  My TSC carries very few chicken-related supplements, but does carry plenty of equine/goat/sheep supplements.  I see that the ingredient list for both the sheep and goat mixes is:

 

Calcium (Min)  0.4%

Calcium (Max) 0.7%

Selenium (min) 0.1 mg/ fl. oz.

Vitamin A (min) 23, 700 IU/ fl. oz., or 790 IU/mL

Vitamin D (min) 5910 IU/fl. oz or 197 IU/mL

Vitamin E (min) 90 IU/fl oz. or 3 IU/mL

 

I can't find any info for the poutry form.  How does it compare to these values?  Any and all help is deeply appreciated in advance.

Thanks, the TSC site was clearly not a place I thought to look....in my mind I must have thought that they wouldn't have it.

If you ask someone at TSC to order it for you, they usually will, at least at our local one.

Make your own.  I treated many a sick chickens with my own mix and they all recovered quickly!  Cheaper and more readily available too.

Homemade Drench:  2 oz Hemp Oil (or other oil, such as corn), 2 oz Molasses, 1 oz Corn Syrup (optional), 1/2 T bee pollen (crushed to powder or you could open a B vitamin capsule and sprinkle in 1/4 capsule), 1/2 T kelp.  Mix all ingredients and store in glass jar.  I refrigerate mine.
