    Polyvisol is liquid childrens vitamins. Commonly available at any pharmacy or wal-mart/k-mart. It would not hurt him to have them. [​IMG] I believe there are two kinds, one that is safe for chickens and one that's got something in it that isn't all that good for chickens. I can't remember what, though.. [​IMG]

    I found it! You need to use the kind without iron. [​IMG]
