    I just got six baby chicks and we are headed home, i have everything i need for them but i am wondering if i need to add anything to their water? Like an antibiotic or duramycin or something like that? Here is a list of what i have already, let me know if i need anything else :)
    Brooder
    Pine shavings
    Chick feed
    Waterer and feeder
    Heat lamp
    And of course a coop for later!
    Please let me know soon and give dosing details and such.
    Four bantams and two pullets.

    A lot of people use Sav-A-Chick for the first couple of weeks. It is a vitamin/electrolyte supplement. I always keep some on hand.
