Homemade Electrolytes for Chickens

Keeping your chickens healthy is important, and electrolytes can help! Here are the benefits of electrolytes for chickens and how to administer them.

Things change quickly with chickens. From a chick that isn't thriving to a chicken that isn't drinking enough in extreme heat.

Electrolytes are very important to proper body function in animals and people.

Electrolytes replace sodium, potassium, and minerals in the body lost due to stress, overheating or dehydration.

Ingredients: – 1 cup warm water – 2 teaspoons granulated sugar – 1/8 teaspoon salt – 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together and stir until completely combined.

Give to sick, stressed, or ailing chicks with a medicine dropper. If they aren’t opening their beaks, you can drip it on the outside of their beaks and sometimes they will open then.
