    Can someone tell me what symptoms a chicken might have that you could use Poly Vi Sol to help?

    I think just about any illness or weakness that gets a bird rundown would be helped by the vitamins. I'm not sure, but I think it comes with and without iron. I would use the kind without iron because I don't know the effect of too much iron in chickens. I think the regular without iron is similar to poultry vitamins. I think people use polyvisol because it is so easy to get.

    I'm wondering if the poly vi sol is used straight out of the bottle or mixed with a little water?

    I'll try that if we have any Black Spanish hatchlings have difficulties this time.

    Thanks,
    David

    When I first saw this, I thought it was in Spanish! That is terrible because I'm taking Spanish, and understandably, failing it.... [​IMG]

    poly vi sol is a baby(human baby) vitamin. Sold in any supermarket, walmart, target, k-mart or any other such store in the vitamin section. Once you find it, you will see how easy it is to get. Also look in the baby sections of these stores.

    I got it at Wal-Mart as well. It's talked about so much on this site, that I thought it might be something good to have on hand.
    Wonder if it would do anything for my hen that keeps doing that gaping thing? I know it's not gapewrom because I had the vet check for it.
