    I have an order shipping on March 2 from Ideal, should I call & have them send some of that Grogel Plus B? or do they ship the chicks with it? [​IMG]

    You have to order it.
    With my chicks I found it to be a waste of money. They walked in it and played with it, but they never did eat it.

    My chicks just came today, and they're eating it like it's the best stuff on the face of the earth! There's more than enough to go around, but they're even fighting over it, trying to take it out of each other's beaks.

    I'm sure you'll get input on this...and decide what you want to do...but it is extra to buy, I think like $4? (well, that's what it was with McMurray, 3.90, I just looked. Our chicks LOVE it.

    Ok, thanks, the other option then is to put the electrolytes in the water which I already have. [​IMG]

    I bought this for my chicks I got last year. They turned their little beaks up at it and would not eat any of it.[​IMG]

    Mine mostly walked in it, some ate it. They went for the sugar and electrolyte water like crazy.

    Now my ducklings ate the growgel like it was candy.

    I think My Pet Chicken just sends it with every order so I'll use it, but I doubt I'd order it specifically again.

    Ok, thanks! I think I will just stick to the electrolytes. [​IMG]
