    Sugar will give an energy boost. I think it really helps after shipping for the first week or 2. I think it's only like a tbsp/ qt, you might read up on it I'm kind of rusty on the subject.

    I would only give sugar water to weak chicks and then for only a day or two. Also if you use it for a period of time make sure you make some fresh often as it will spoil very quickly.
