    Make sure it is without iron.

    5 drops by beak for 5 days.

    Too much iron is poisonous.

    Baby Vitamins are given by beak.

    Avia charge and other brands is given in water.

    Give 5 drops by beak for 5 days of no iron baby vitamins.

    Careful you put it alongside the beak and let them drink it. If it gets in their nostrils they can drown.

    It should be fine diluted but I wouldn't give it any more.

    No iron vits given by beak.

    Put ACV in the water instead.
