Hi BaileyBoy !
Poultry Nutri-Drench is specially formulated for stressed and sick poultry. Excellent for chicks. Difference is, it doesn't need digesting. It mainlines directly into the bloodstream by passing the G.I. tract whose digesting ability has been compromised by stress or sickness.
read all about it here:

http://nutridrench.com/poultry-1.html if they are out of Poultry Nutri-Drench the science techs at Bovidr Labs told me you can use Pet Nutri-Drops in the same usage and dosage as stated in the "Travel stress" post above.

Comparison of ingredients. Poly-Vi-Sol and Poultry Nutri-Drench . 29.75 ml to a fl.oz., adjust accordingly.
