Greybeard has a better grasp of your ounces and gallons...lol. You're doing fine and you're not bothering anyone. :hugsYou're only concerned and that's commendable. I feed my entire flock on 21% chick starter because I also give grain. If she would eat chick starter, my thoughts are that it's fine.
Darn, I totally missed you. When you get on BYC...send me a conversation. I can't find you. I'm not really certain how to search, yet.
I'm going to be out but I can help figure out the stuff if you wish. I usually break it down like this...

Yes, don't you love mixing with those amounts...lol. Not! I will mention one thing I've read that I didn't know until a month ago...apparently one has to watch when you give electrolytes. It's fine if it's to an individual that needs...

I went back and reread your first post. As long as she seems fine as far as acting normal etc...I would watch, probably give her food she likes and see how things go. It's good to be watching her and keeping tabs...if she seems weak or unwell then intervene. The electrolyte with vitamins is a...
Hi! Most of the BYC members have most likely moved back to the site. I just saw your thread. Is there anything noticeable about her...her crop or a distended belly?
As long as she's eating there's hope.
If you are breeding commercial animals where you're not restricted by a purebred registry...and these animals are for yourself and don't have any genetic issues (which I'm assuming they wouldn't since you're keeping them) ;) it should be ok to cross father/daughter or mother/son.
I agree with...
Have you contacted any of the Katahdin breeders in Ontario? I hope the link below works.
