I was wondering if anyone has tried the Gro Gel Plus for the first feeding of chicks after shipment. It is powder that you mix with water and it makes a paste, green I think. McMurray recommended it and I ordered it along with vitamin / electrolyte pak for water to give upon arrival. I was just wondering also if it seemed to be effective or just a marketing ploy. This will be my first time recieving chicks through the mail and I want to make sure they get the best start possible so if you have other ideas for me to try please let me know. Usually I get them from the feed store when they are a couple days older. I feel like a little kid at Christmas waiting for these babies to arrive.
