    Good morning!

    I don't know if it's to late for a response but, hatcheries recommend putting sugar in baby chicks water so they'll have energy and are more likely to survive on their trip.

    Hopes this helps!

    I never did. But do what feels right for you. Its only for the first drink any ways.
    Other than that just water.
