    I have 5 week old chicks. Do I need to give them any extra supplements/vitamins ect. Two of them had a bloody discharge but they seem ok now.[​IMG]

    Wow! I bet that was scarey! If you have them on commercial chick starter, they shouldn't need anything else. I give mine alfalfa leafs because I have them available and they are so nutritious. [​IMG]
