    I have seen 3 days and up to 2 weeks. Can anyone advise? Thank you!

    I guess that could be right I've never used it

    I think it's only used if the chicks are stressed. I haven't used it. [​IMG]

    I got a pack of it when I picked up my first chicks at the hatchery. The lady there said many just use it for 3 or 4 days but she recommended that I use it until it was gone. I did that, it lasted about 4-5 weeks. I've got my two-week old chicks on it and will use that pack until it's gone.
