    So I bought a 60 capsule bottle of niacin for the baby ducks I plan on buying tomorrow and was going to our them in the same brooders as my chicks. But I was just wondering if the chicks will be ok with drinking niacin water like the ducks will.? (500mg) I'm putting about half for every gallon

    I would make that half a capsule for two gallons, to get 125 mg per gallon, which is within the range recommended by Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks.

    Hope some chicken & duck people can help out with the question about the chicks.....
