    You can use the vitamins and electrolytes powder that you can get at any feed store, that you add to their water. This is good too with the hot weather with the electrolytes in it...do for about 3 days at a time....[​IMG]

    I only give poultry vitamins and electrolytes on super hot days (100 degrees or better). My flock free ranges and get all the vitamins and minerals they could need, the way mother nature intended. The only thing I supplement with year-round is oyster shell.
