    Hi [​IMG] Welcome To BYC

    Are your chicks sick?

    There's no way to tell you if the "concoction" is ok for your chicks. Personally I don't add anything to my water. If I have a chicken that is ill, droopy, not feeling well, etc., then I will evaluate whether or not they need vitamins, electrolytes, probiotics, etc. then treat the individual.

    There's nothing that says you can't add any of these things to water, so do some research/reading to find what seems best for your chickens.
