My new chicks are on medicated feed (crumbles), but I've read that many of you put vitamins in their water, too... Is it overkill to do both? I want to keep them healthy, but I need to find a good balance between optimum diet and supplementation...

Many thanks for answering my 10,001 questions!

They don't need vitamins as that is usually just for a short while till they get up on their feet in the first few days, or if the birds get sick, or sustain injury.
