  • Hydration during transportation
  • Hydration during hold over before placement


  • How many cubes does each pouch yield?


  • Why does liquid seem to accumulate in the edges of the pouch?

    HydroGel95 may exhibit some syneresis over time accumulating liquid (water) in the corners of the pouch. This is NORMAL. SYNERISIS, also described as watering off, helps the gel to slide out of the pouch without sticking to the plastic. Many hatcheries pre-cut the gel in the morning, store the gel cubes in totes and dispense them later in the day. The moisture on the outside of the gel mitigates the gel drying out.

  • How many gel cubes are needed per 85 chick, chick-box?


  • Why is HydroGel 95 dark green?

    Poultry researchers have studied what colors and contrasts with color attract hatchlings most. Green, blue and red in contrast to lighter, natural earth tones like poultry bedding, or shipping crate liners has been shown to be attractive to hatchlings. Further research as demonstrated the green color of HydroGels to be most effective.

    * When handling the product it is a good idea to wear gloves, so your hands do not accumulate the green coloring.

  • Why don’t HydroGels require refrigeration?

    HydroGels are manufactured in an FDA inspected food manufacturing facility with each production lot tested by an independent laboratory and certified commercially sterile. The unique formulation of HydroGel for stable water retention combined with the state of commercial sterility renders the gel room temperature shelf stable.

  • What is the optimum portioning provided with HydroGel 95 utilizing the HydroGel Cutting Device?

    One pouch of HydroGel 95 cut with the HydroGel Cutting Device yields 49 uniform cubes, each averaging approximately 20 grams. Recommended usage is 4 cubes per shipping crate to provide a nutritional hydration supplement for a shipping crate with a stocking rate typically ranging from 75 to 100 chicks.

  1. I recently received my box of hydrogel 95. I can say I’m very happy with the product .I’ve been shipping Birds with lots of anxiety lately knowing they are going to be in the shipping box longer than they should be .now with the HydroGel I’m not worried I know the birds will be healthy and hydrated upon arrival which they have been. Even when spending extra days in the shipping box .You can visit our ranch at Laz Delgado utility bird on YouTube

  2. We started using HydroGel 95 by ClearH2O, in all of our day-old chick shipments, after switching away from another brand of nutritional gel.

    With HydroGel 95, the chicks go right to it, and begin eating it right away. The fact that HydroGel is premade in a sterile environment was a huge plus for us. Mixing products in a hatchery, on hatch day, simply doesn’t provide that same environment of cleanliness. Our employees appreciate the simplicity in administering the product, and the fact that there is no product mixing involved, making cleanup much easier.

    We have seen in-transit mortality drop to virtually zero since switching to HydroGel 95, and have experienced benefits in using and including it in each and every chick shipment that we send out, no matter where that destination is.

    We highly recommend using this product, as you will most certainly experience positive results.

  3. A few years ago, we were introduced to HydroGel95 by an overseas customer who has started adding it to their shipments, and they claimed to have seen great results.
    During summertime due to the increases in temperature we tend to see higher mortality rates in our export shipments of baby chick; so, we decided to start adding HydroGel to see if it would help with the problem. Since then, we have seen the mortality rates drop to almost zero!
    We are extremely satisfied with this product as our chicks arrive in excellent condition when it is used especially with the record high temperatures we have been seeing lately.
    Our employees find this product easy and simple to pack in our chick boxes; it does not take much time to do it.

    Overall, we are very happy with this product; and it sure is worth the investment to our business, customers’ satisfaction, and safety of our chicks during their flights.
