Does anyone use pedialyte for their electrolytes? If so, how much per gallon of water? I read that dr. Lamberton uses this and it's fairly cheap and readily available.
I believe Dr lamberton uses it after a race And perhaps a long toss. And i believe just straight no mixing. I never used it BUT sounds like a good idea as it would rehydrate the bird well enough.Does anyone use pedialyte for their electrolytes? If so, how much per gallon of water? I read that dr.

I found this at the feed store and bought it a few weeks ago. I've sprinkled some on the feed a couple of times per week. I was more interested in inexpensive way to get probiotics. I haven't used it enough, nor do I have experience enough to say that it's good. I'm glad someone else uses it though.I use Merricks BLUE RIBBON Polutry electrolyte pack with Direct-Fed Microbials, after every race , for 2 days, or when birds are off form , or sick. A 4ozs pack makes 37 1/2 gals. all for about $4.00, USDs. My birds bounce right back on the stuff. The Lactobacillus acidophilus refills the gut with friendly bacteria after the birds have gone over 18 hours without food when racing.
