    I am not familiar with it, you might try searching poultry supplier's websites.

    I vaguely remember something along that line. They were a pill containing vitamins and electrolytes. They were added to the chicken¬ís water. I believe while they were still chicks? They were sold at one of the feed stores I have frequented.​

    I remember it too. Yes, it was for chicks for a vitamin. Very similar to the powder we mix in now.
