    I need to know how much karo surup to put in a gallon of water for my newest chicks.

    (picked up my 10 aracanas(sp) ....... ummmm.... plus another/extra 10 because they got in extra based off of my order and I can make a bigger coup! ... nope i'm not adicted to chickens... not at all ... )

    Don't know. I've never done that. You can just dissolve a little sugar in their water, but I'd go easy on it. It can give them the runs, leading to pasty bums. And I wouldnt do it more than a couple of days to give them a boost from the stress of shipping.
