    I added electrolytes yesterday morning to all my waterers in response to severe heat exhaustion on Tuesday. Fortunately, I did not lose any of my hens and they are up and around and doing fine.

    But, how long should I continue with the electrolytes? I bought the dry powder and currently all their water has been treated.

    The weather has turned back to cool and foggy so it looks like the sudden heat may be over for now.
