Here's how Gro-Gel Plus works:
Upon arrival, mix 1/2 cup of water with a packet of Gro-Gel Plus and spread it over their food creating a bright green attractant to their feed source. The birds will love it. Upon consumption, the day-olds will get water (Hydration), Proteins and Amino Acids (The building blocks of most body tissues), Carbohydrates and Fats (Energy), Vitamins (Gets the digestive and immune system started), and Probiotic Bacteria (Gets the gut bacterial population going). This is really a complete supplement for getting them off to a great start.
One packet will be enough for 100 baby chickens or turkey poults, 200 pheasant chicks or ducklings, or 400 baby quail. We highly recommend using Gro-Gel Plus on the first day and then supplementing your flock with either Quik Chik or Broiler Booster for the next several weeks. Gro-Gel Plus is a brand new product for us and is not listed in our catalog. Please consider adding this to your next order of day old baby poultry. This can we shipped with poultry orders.
GroGel Plus-B is composed of the following microorganisms:
LACTOSACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS: This is a primary Lactobacillus microorganism which according to documented research implants on the villi of the intestinal tract. The only member of this Lactobacillus genus known to implant. This microorganism during it growth phase produces lactic acid and the enzyme amylase. These strains were isolated from poultry and therefore are adapted to poultry. They will multiply rapidly in the poultry gut unlike other non-specific strains.
LACTORBACILLUS CASEI: This primary Lactobacillus enjoys a wide temperature and pH range in its growth phase. This microorganism complements the growth of L. acidophilus. Lactic acid is produced as well as amylase.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM BIFIDUM: This is a very delicate microorganism found commonly in mother's milk and the intestine of man and animals.
STREPTOCOCCUS FAECIUM: A beneficial Streptococcus microorganism know for its ability to produce Lactic acid in pH ranges similar to that of Lactobacillus casei.
Do i give them Quick Chik when they arrive or just the Gro Gel and then the Quick Chik the next day?
We highly recommend using Gro Gel Plus on the first day and then supplementing your flock with either Quik Chik or Broiler Booster for the next several weeks.
for 25 chicks...how much gro gel?
One packet will be enough for 100 baby chickens.
Is Gro Gel Plus the same as Gro Gel Plus "B" ?
Do I put the Gro Gel on the food on day of arrival and then next day I put Quik Chik in the water ?
The gel is a probiotic and should be given the first day for best results. Quik chik is a vitamin supplement with electrolytes that will help rehydrate the babies after shipping. You mix it in the water upon receiving the chicks.
