    What all natural, (no vitamins from coal tars), liquid vitamins are available for chickens? I may use children's vitamins which are completely from natural sources.
    What are the sources Purina uses in chicken feed for layers?

    Have you looked at the Sav-A-Chick electrolyte and/or probiotic? It comes as a vitamin supplement and digestive one, too. Not sure if it fits your criteria, but it's widely available.

    Thank you and I used it for baby chicks but I am going to find an all around natural vitamin probably something for children might do.

    If you are feeding a complete feed such as Purina[​IMG] Start & Grow or Purina[​IMG] Layena[​IMG] or any other Purina[​IMG] poultry feed, then it is not necessary to supply your birds with additional vitamins. If you are concerned about the level of vitamin supplementation your birds are receiving in their feed, you should consult with an animal nutritionist or a veterinarian.
