    I am having a hard time finding how much Nutri Balancer to add to 50 or 100# of feed. The bag says 60# per 2000# of feed which is way more than I have. Help please [​IMG]

    it's just math. I'll be happy to do it for you if you really need help, but I suspect you can figure it out.

    I know this is an older post, but I just did this myself so I figured I could answer for future searchers...

    0.48oz of Fertrell Nutri-Balancer per pound of feed.
    or
    24oz of Fertrell Nutri-Balancer Per 50 pounds of feed.
    or
    1.5lbs of Fertrell Nutri-Balancer Per 50 pounds of feed.

    I just did the math on this, too ... to determine how much Nutri-balancer per serving of feed. In grams cuz that's a convenient unit of measure for small quantities and a kitchen scale.

    I suck at math, but I think I figured:

    IF a bird eats 1/3 lb of prepared poultry feed per day

    THEN the "serving" of Nutri-Balancer should be about 4.5 grams.

    Phew. I need a nap.
