    Are you exposed to give baby chicks sugar water? I'm new to this. Thanks.

    I just give mine regular tap water. If they are acting weak I sometimes give them polyvisol vitamins to help them along. But for the most part they just get regular water. [​IMG]

    Sugar water can give them a boost if they are looking pekid. Electrolytes are better, but the sweet sugar taste encourages them to drink more when they are dehydrated.
