    Vitamin B is important for their structure in addition to other vitamins/minerals. I give just a drop of Poultry Nutri-Drench to any weak chicks and it generally picks them back up, and encourages eating and drinking. There are many garbage water dispersible vitamins out there. I use .5 tsp per gallon of Avian Super Pack 3 days a week in water. That way if certain ones aren't eating enough the water will supplement and stimulate appetite more.
