    I have one little chick who is having a hard time eating. I wanted to give her some little boost to keep her energy up. I've been reading that some of you give your chicks gatorade or pedialyte. How much should I give the chicks and should I mix it with water. Thanks for your help!!

    I purchased the vitamin/electrolyte packages that were sold by the hatchery. They actually are general purpose stuff that you can probably get from TSC. The directions are for swine, cows, horses and goats. The hatchery added chickens, 1/4tsp. per gallon. They just stuck a label on the outside of the package for poulty with those amounts. So far so good on my chicks.....

    Good luck,
