What Is Grogel?
Gro-Gel plus B provides immediate nutrition and hydration to new chicks. It is an edible gel material that you rehydrate and feed to your chicks upon arrival that provides amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and probiotics.
How do I mix Grogel and feed it to my poultry?
To mix your grogel you'll need some water, measuring spoons and a container to mix your grogel in.
One packet can feed 100 chicks, here are some general guidelines if you have fewer chicks:
- 100 Chicks = 1 Packet of Grogel + 1/2 Cup Water
- 50 Chicks = 1 Teaspoon of Grogel + 1/4 Cup Water
- 25 Chicks = 3/4 Teaspoon of Grogel + 2 Tablespoons Water
- 12 Chicks = 3/8 Teaspoon of Grogel + 1 Tablespoon Water
If your order of chicks results in a quantity that falls in between, mix enough for the next-highest quantity. For example, if you ordered 15 chicks, mix enough for 25 chicks.
Mix your grogel and water until it turns into a gel consistency. Let rest for 1-2 minutes to ensure the water is fully absorbed and provided to your chicks in their brooder. Grogel lasts for about 6 hours after mixing. Discard any remaining gel after 6 hours.
