    that is a vitamin and electrolyte supplement...you may check at your local feed store...you can get the same thing in a bigger bag and save green$$$$$

    This is good to know though. I think I will add it to my birds water. Good idea. I just posted the question also on FB to Castle Seramas page. Curious what she does.

    As I posted there, once a month I put avia charge in their water for a week. It's more preventative than needed in my opinion - I have never had a health issue with my inside birds. Once a month for a week they also get ACV in the water.

    Quote:When you say willow, you mean greenish yellow with the yellow pad under right??? If that is the case then when you pair your willow legs hen with a pure yellow legs rooster you will get 50% pure yellow, 25% willow and 25% green/slate. Yellow is a dominance gene over green/slate!!!

    I can't speak of all, I raise all my birds in off the ground cages and all I feed them is Nutri-Blend green/yellow by Purina, hard boiled eggs and some vegies. I don't give my birds any vitamin supplements unless they are recovering from illness. For winter months, I add some corn into their feed to keep warm. In the past 3 yrs of raising them, I have not seen any sign of vitamin deficiency in my flock.

    [​IMG]I have that also. But I like the sav-a-chick. it seem to work faster for some reason. had one a pullet that wasnt doing so hot one time and the s.a.c. pulled her through.

    Thank you so much. I don't think my local feed store has ACV....I will go check at Jeffers. Or do you recommend a better on line source? I too am just doing for prevention.
