I'm no expert, but I would think that the vitamins/electrolytes would only help them anyway.. I think they're good to give to chicks. As far as the antibiotics, I'm of the school that if an animal doesn't show the signs don't give extra drugs. It's a lot for their little systems. I'd say keep them fed, watered, all those good things with the vits/elec, and then if they show any signs, start them on some Terramycin.
