    Not sure if I posted this in the right spot, but I am wondering how long to use the GroGel? Is this something that you give them the first day you get them, or do you feed it a day or so? Thanks much....[​IMG]

    I give the GroGel for the first 24 hours, if chicks have had a hard trip I might give them more for a bit but I also wet down some chick starter to help them get a good start (I do a lot of Bantams so they are a bit more fragile than the standard chicks) - they will let you know if they are eating, drinking and happy - a loud chick is not a happy chick.
