    Hello,

    Is it wise to add Electrolytes to the chicks water from day one? If so, can I use pedialyte for children?
    If not, what do you prefer?

    There are several brands of chick water additives. Quik Chik is one that I use only for the first day for newly shipped chicks. It helps give them a boost to get over the shipping stress.

    the orange flavor works best
