feed vitamins to new chicks

Discussion in 'Feeding & Watering Your Flock' started by equine chick, Apr 1, 2007.

  1. I'm ordering grogel for my chicks that arrive on april 23. How often do you feed them the vitamins? Is it just once or for a couple of, days or weeks?

    I got Gro Gel from McMurray Hatchery when I got my peeps, & they wouldn't eat it. When you mix it up, there's only about a half of a cup of it, anyway, so it's a one time thing.

    Do you have the electrolytes to go in the water?[​IMG]

    We got vitamins and electrolytes from Tractor Supply for under $3. We added it to the chick's water for the first 6 weeks of their life. We also add it if they seem to be under stress (like moving from brooder to barn) or under the weather.
