    These 14 baby Silkies just hatched yesterday! They are soo cute. Two of them needed a little "help" getting out but they are good. My question is, is there anything I should put in thier water? Like vitamins or something. They are so tiny and I just want to make sure they are in the best health they can be in. Thanks.[​IMG]

    I usually mix in a Chick Boost. It's a probiotic and electrolyte combo. Most feed stores have it and it gives them a little extra energy and a boost to the immune system. Not necessary of course but a good addition.
