    Well, I am new to raising chicks, but bought 3 at the feedstore a couple of weeks ago.
    Thanks everyone for the advice on my peeping chick, she was just stressed. I have tried to post pics, but cant figure out how to do so, darnit.
    But anyway, my lil grasshopper, Fandango, has that crooked beak, so I was reading she should probably have extra vitamins, etc, just in case its caused by Vit D deficiency, an so on.
    So...I take them all out on the kitchen floor and they play while I clean their box out and give them fresh water an such.
    Well, I added some vitamins to their water, and it made it cloudy. They ran over to their water, expecting pretty clear water and saw this cloudy crud, and I swear, two of them gave me this look that said..."THIS is FRESH???? What did you put in this crap???" Finally they took a small drink, shook their heads in disgust, and then they walked off....
    It was hilarious. Still laughing over that one...

    They can be pretty fussy! Add a touch of sugar to the water with the vits. and maybe they'll drink it then.[​IMG]
