    What kind of vitamins and electrolytes does everyone give there flock? How do you administer it and where do you get it from? Thanks:idunno
  2. I don't give mine anything except layer pellets, I used the mash until i noticed that more was going on the ground than in their stomachs so I switched to pelletts, I do try to use natural apple cider vinegar when i remember, but other than that they made it find. but I'm new to chickens so somebody else may have a different angle marrie

    Quote:If I feel they need the vitamins & electrolytes (like when I bring in new chickens) I get it from Tractor Supply TSC, maybe your feed store might have some. I usually just put the organic apple cider vinegar in their water. About a teaspoon - tablespoon depending on how large their waterer is.
