    You might need to repost the question. It got truncated.

    I think I know your question though. It was about water?

    Chickens should have access to all the clean water they can drink. It is the most important nutrient.

    yes it was about the water ....and i will let them to drink fresh water
    I have heard that broilers bones are weak enough to carry their weight..so i am giving them calcium in less amount to strengthen there bones...........what more should i do .......should i leave them to free range them in winter without any heat lamp.its 15 degree C
