    Okay so I have a couple of questions. My chicks are supposed to hatch in about a week. After they all hatch should I give them any medicines? What about SAV-A-CHICK stuff? Can I give them regular water or should I put sugar in it? Any other suggestions?

    I didn't medicate any of my chicks or put anything in there' water and they did just fine. I didn't even use medicated chick starter, so I would say just give them all the normal stuff (just food and water). I dunno, others may have other ideas!
    Good Luck on your hatch! :)

    They don't need any medicine unless they are sick. I use Save-A-Chick for a day or so but that's on chicks that were shipped to me. It certainly won't harm your chicks if you want to do that but it's probably not necessary unless you have a slow chick.
