    Is the water you have provided just sugar water?

    If so, swap it out to regular water. If you want to add anything, you can add save a chick or the probiotic packets of stuff. Sugar water shouldn't be given all the time, that is just a quick pick me up for a chick/duckling that is needing some extra umph to get going.
