Home Made Electrolyte recipe

Home Made Electrolyte recipe

1 cup water
2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Use full strength on severely ailing chickens, otherwise mix into their drinking water as needed, a cup per gallon of water.

Replacing the electrolytes lost during times of oppressive heat could mean the difference between life and death to your chickens.

You can also add this electrolyte mix to water for your dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and other animals. Even mix some into a little fruit juice for yourself or your kids.


Here is the link if you would like to read the article http://communitychickens.blogspot.ca/20 … ather.html


Chickens:  EO's, BLRW, Ameracauna's (blue/black/splash also Lavender) and lavender D'Uccles
Waterfowl: Super dewlap Africans, Seb's, American Blue Geese, Muscovies,
also guinea fowl and peafowl

Re: Home Made Electrolyte recipe

Sticked!  Thanks so much for posting this PC! :thumbs: We are getting a slight reprieve today.  I can't believe we get this heat and no thunderstorms.  We usually get 1 every day or two a day in July!
