    What do you use?

    I'd prefer to use something I can add to the baby chicks water and then continue to use thereafter.

    I can't remember what I used the last time I got chicks! (This memory loss thing really su............oops..[​IMG])

    Whatever it was it was good stuff. What do you use?

    Thanks in advance.

    Never heard of using electrolytes for chicks, I have a few bottles of Hydro Life for my leopard Geckos.

    I am using Agrilabs
    Vitamins &Electrolytes "Plus"
    This is what the packet says:

    Designed for use in Cattle, Swine, Sheep, Horses, Ruminants, Poultry and Turkeys during periods of stress or reduced feed intake.

    I was told to use this for about a week or so then switch to plain pure water.

    I use a product called Pro-Vital All Bird Economy. It is Vit, Electrolytes and Pro-Biotics. It is for Poultry, Pigeons and other fowl. You can read up on it at:http://www.provitalhealth.com/

    I found them from reading Poultry Press and I have been very satisfied. Their product is not very expensive and I like that I can use it all the time.

    I bought poultry electrolytes w/stabilized vitamin C at the co-op, brand name Russell produced by a company called Alpharma.
    I only used it during the extreme heat of late July and the month of August. Otherwise fresh clean water seems to work just fine.
