The electrolytes shouldn't bother them for a mix. I think that's if they are kept on electrolytes for an extended amount of time.:thumbsup

Did I post wrong. It is a 4 oz bag that makes up 128 gallons of water. Or I misread what you posted above.

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.

My name over there is yellowrose1 I think. I have another name but don't use it if I can help it. And I am still looking for my thread over there. Is it named the same thing over there? I sure hope it wasn't put under my other name.

People say I worry to much about my animals. They are all I have, they are my friends and my only family. The 2 legged family have no time for me, not even my 2 boys And will never meet my grandkids in cali. The cats and chicken are what I got to give me a reason to continue the good fight.

I must have missed that this is a powder mix. I raise cattle and work in larger volumes, as the smallest water tank I use is 150 gallons. I generally use electrolyte and other medicines that comes in liquid concentrate form.


You will most likely have to use Wickedchickens formula regarding fractions of powder measure instead of the drop measurement I posted.

Someone needs to come over here and help me really quit. She took her 7 outside or she tried to get away and they follow and left the 3 I added of buff hens because I think I will loose her. I should have taken the 7 back in instead of the 3 out with the others and now I can't get them all back in. I need 16 hands.

Sorta a joke.
-----------------------------------------------------

I'm glad the 7 know the drill. When I start herding them they know they are heading back to the coop. I managed to get them all back in easier then I thought.

As for mom, she will be gone soon I am certain. She did go out to get away from the chicks. I have her back in under the light also. She can't seem to hold her head up. Should I just put her out of her misery??? Normally I would but I have been concerned about the chicks.

The other three chicks I have out there were abandoned by their moms at 3 weeks. I never kept them penned and they are doing fine. And now I have my Australorp momma going broody. I wish she would wait for the new coop when it will be finished this fall. I am moving from an 8x8 to a 10x12 and think I should have gone even bigger.. The broody's will have a designated corner specifically for them. I will be able to block them off or keep it open. I only asked the Lord for a couple Broody's. I must have 5 or 6 now. I lost one, peanut, to a weasel I think. She was another good buff orphington broody. I got the other 3 buff chicks that are 2 days apart because when big momma is gone I will only have one buff left. And she don't like to go broody.

Most of the chicks appear to be roosters, so they will all go in the freezer. My girls can only handle the one rooster and Mister is a really great protector and so lovable with me. I will also be thinning out some of my 5 yr old girls. :( I don't want over 20-25 total at any given time.

Anyway. I will say it once more then log out. And try to find the thread I apparently have at BYC. Thank you so such for everything. And allowing me to babble on so.

May God Bless everyone.

Wish I could move this entire thread over to BYC. The only things I have over there are a year and 2 yrs old threads. I will check in here occasionally in case anyone has any more for me...
