    Has anyone ever put Pedialite in the water for help in restoring Fluids and Elecrolytes in their girls. If so how much ?

    I used straight Pedialyte on an injured bird a couple years back, but only for two days. Why are you worried about restoring fluids and electrolytes? Water (maybe with a little ACV) is the best option for birds in general. "Electrolytes" is a fancy way of saying sugar and salt, neither of which is great for birds long term and in large quantities.
