    i got a bag of the "quick chick" powder to mix into thier water when i got the chicks. i've been giving it to them since day 1. how long should i keep putting it in thier water? i figure it's good for them, so i guess you could give it to 'em forever, but just wondering when it'd be good to ween them off of it. thanx for the info.

    by "quick chick" do you mean the yellow antibiotics that you put in their water?

    I only gave the quick chick to mine for the first 3 days after they arrived from the post office. I occasionally give them some in their water when its really hot out. But I don't think you need to wean them off. I would save it for when you need it. But I do think that it is a very good product for them.

    Quote:yeah, it's that yellow powder you mix in with thier water that is full of vitamins & good stuff, like gatorade for chicks.
