    I had food and water available as soon as my chicks arrived. As I took each one out of the shipping box, I dipped their beak in the water and then set the chick down in the feed trough.
    I mixed up half the gro-gel for 25 chicks, but they had no interest in it. The other half of the package I kept on hand for awhile, in case of a weak chick, but never used it.
  3. i've tried that stuff on every hatchling and new chick i've had, and no one seems to want it. They all go straight for the chick feed.
