    Yea it’s been an ongoing joke since our first hatch because tiny raptor” is a dinosaur and we had those little Dino’s from my kids toy box

    I’m not giving vitamin b yet, can I just put baby chick vitamin in their water and is that enough?

    Sure! Does the vitamins have vitamin B in them? Vitamin B is the best for helping strengthen legs.

    There are many B vitamins—thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6, folic acid, etc. In chicks riboflavin or B2 is important in leg healthin chickens. Just to say, Poultry NutriDrench does NOT contain riboflavin, but many chicken vitamins do. You can use vitamin B complex tablets 1/4 tablet daily which provides most all B vitamins.
