    Hi....Does anyone know if fluorinated water is ok to give to chicks? My hubs changed our chicks filtered water out and filled it with tap water which has fluoride. We have a really, really sick chick that probably isn't going to make it but just wondering if it could be the fluoride in the water.

    I doubt that's the problem. It isn't ideal but many people use fluoridated water, including myself.
