    I got my babies by mail Wednesday today is Sunday how long do I give them the probiotics and the electrolytes ? I'm giving it to my turkeys that are like 2 weeks old now and my baby ducks which are 2 weeks as well ?
    Thanks :)

    By now, your babies are out of the woods following the stresses of shipping. You may elect to continue the probiotics, but the electrolytes aren't necessary unless you get some very hot weather.
