I posted this on the feeding page too..

I bought some electrolytes at the farm store. It said to mix 4 oz with 55 gallons.ahh..I'm getting 6 chicks. So I did the conversion, .07 oz, or 1.9 grams to a gallon, but my scale only did 5 grams. 1 tsp was 5 grams, so I estimated, just under 1/2 tsp per gallon would work.
What do you guys think/

You wouldn't want electrolytes unless they are dehydrated. Just reg. vitamins. It's something about the electrolytes will do organ damage. I would tell you to contact dlhunicorn but, she has been deleted acording to another post. Try back tomorrow.

good thing I got this info before my chicks. I'll change out the water container. My gut was telling me something was wrong. Thanks!
