    What should I put in their water? That vitamin mix? Or some sugar? Or maybe some apple cider vinegar? Which one's the best?

    PK, I did not put anything i their water. But some vitamins couldn't hurt.

    What kind of chicks are you getting?

    You can put sugar and/or a little honey in the FIRST day, but after that, take it out. Sugary things are a cause of pasty butt and you really don't want that. Chickies really only need a little pick-me-up the first day home. [​IMG]

    I use QuickChick for 3 days. It's an electrolyte supplement with vitamins, and about $2 for a small pack.
