Add 500ml to 20l of water. Allow the birds to drink this for up to 4 hours before removing. But note that this dose is used to flush the hen's digestive system of toxic substances.

In moderate amounts, it offers health benefits to the heart and muscles. The best form of molasses for chickens is the blackstrap molasses. It is high in iron, magnesium, potassium, and calcium.

From Wikipedia:
Blackstrap molasses

Blackstrap molasses, or simply blackstrap, is the dark, viscous molassesremaining after maximum extraction of sugar from raw sugar cane. This residual product of sugar refining is used in the manufacture of ethanol for industry and as an ingredient in cattle feed. The term is an Americanism dating from the 1870s. First known use is in a book by detective Allan Pinkerton in 1877.[1]

The third boiling of sugar syrup yields blackstrap molasses. The majority of sucrosefrom the original crystallizes through this process, though the calorie content of blackstrap molasses is still mostly due to the small remaining sugar content.[2]However, unlike refined sugars, it contains significant amounts of vitamin B6 andminerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese; one tablespoon provides up to 20% of the recommended daily value of each of those nutrients. Blackstrap is also a good source of potassium.[3] It is sometimes used in baking.

Blackstrap has long been sold as a dietary supplement, being touted as a health food or superfood.

There are 3 types of molasses according to sugar content: the sweet one, slightly sweet one and the slightly bitter one (blackstrap). http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/types-mo...-2894.html

Here is a very interesting link that contains the information you need and more. It's an experiment using molasses in broilers' drinking water.
