    Has anyone ever tried children's Pedialyte or Gatorade to boost electolite levels in lethargic chicks? Curious.

    I have used gatorade on older chickens and it works great, but i wouldn't on chicks.
    I think the salt and sugar content in gatorade would be alittle too much for a chick.
    Everyone recommends a drop of poly-vi-sol or pedialyte should work on a baby chick.

    ACV is all you need...has the necessary elements to replace electrolytes.
