    Hi,

    I just placed an order with Ideal that will ship on March 8th. They are recommending that I purchase "Grogel Plus-B". What is it? Is it a good idea?

    Thanks,
    John

    Grogel is a green gel/goop like substance. It is a powder that is mixed with water, and is used to hydrate the chicks en route, or, shortly after they arrive at your house. The "B" stands for Probiotic (beneficial) Bacteria.
