    I have a 3 day old chick with weak toes and I searched BYC and read about the "shoe method" of giving your chick needed support for healthy foot development. I also read that giving the chick something like pedialyte would also be good - however, I can't figure out if I should dilute it or not - and if I should, how much should I dilute it.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
