Poultry Nutri-Drench is an nutritional supplement made by the specialist company Bovidr Labs. Made under 2 US patents, it is different because it doesn't need digesting. It mainlines straight to the bloodstream with 50% uptake in 10 minutes and 99% uptake in 30 minutes. Excellent for any time birds are stressed and/or off their feed. Show, breeding, molting, sickness, and esp. for combating travel stress in chicks, etc. . I've included URL's below for fuller explanations and examples.
Poultry Nutri-Drench comes in 4 oz. , quart, and gallon sizes. They do not make the 8oz. size with pump any more. It is very concentrated.
Their science techs instructed me that for chicks, they reaffirm one drop by mouth upon arrival. Then 2 cc per gallon of water in the chicks water for the next 2 weeks. ( one will probably need the qt. bottle to supplement for 2 weeks, it depends on how many chicks one has I use 2 of the 4 oz. bottles during hatching season in my backyard flock). Bovidr said it does say 4 cc per gallon on the bottle, however, if the chicks won't drink that strong of solution, 2 cc per gallon works just fine. If one is using less than a gallon waterer, then change the PND/water ratios accordingly.

The old website but I like its explanations. Esp. the Ingredients icon.
If your store is out of Poultry Nutri-Drench you can use Pet Nutri-Drops. That Icon works on this page too. Per the Bovidr Labs science techs, both products can be used with the same usage and dosage instructions as Poultry Nutri-Drench.
