    I had a chick born that kept scratching it's eyes till it's skin bled. Then when that stopped it kept dropping it's head and wagging it back and forth. It even did some somersaults tucking it's head so far down. I didn't know what to do for it but I knew it had a vitamin defficiency. I didn't have Poly Vi Sol and really had no intentions of purchasing any. Normally I would have culled it but this chick is pretty special. Anywayz...I did have some vitamin water on hand so I put some in the water for two days and today I'm happy to say the chick is doing fabulous [​IMG]

    This is what I used. .99 at wal-mart and I got to drink some to, lol. I actually had a $1.00 off coupon so it was totally free (even better)

    Here's the chick, it's a blue orp from MissPrissy. It's totally back to normal, it just wasn't to happy with me waking it up for a photo op. [​IMG]

    I just thought this might help someone else out when you need something in a pinch. I gave the water to all of them. I did not dilute it the first day but did 1/2 and 1/2 on the second. I'm not saying this is a cure all just another unorthadoxed way.

    The vitamins probably helped, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was from the sweetener too.
