    I added it to their water , hope no one shoots me , but my breeder said a few drops til you can see the colour in the water[​IMG], I know that doesn't really help , but I did it with good results.

    My waterer is 1 quart for the littles and I probably added 1 teaspoon

    I used to use the Poly-vi-sol but now I'm using Nutri-drench.
    It has the vitamins/minerals but also a couple essential amino acids and molasses for energy.

    Because iron is too easy to overdose with fatal results.
