    I have a roo showing signs of dehydration and I need to get him some electrolytes. I can't find my emergency electrolyte packet for chickens that I had and I can't get out of town right this second to get more. So will Emergan-C work in a pinch?

    Why won't he drink water? But if that's all you've got it's worth a try!!

    I've saved two chickens lives already, on here, and I think it's worth it to save the poor Roos life!

    BuffOrps123 I separated him from the rest and he is drinking water on his own. So now I am just wanting to get his electrolytes replenished since it is really hot.
