    I got about 50 coturnix quail on day 9 in the bator and been trying to find some info on putting supplements in the chicks water? Can find a bunch of info on chickens but not so much on quail. Some people say to others say not to, obviously if you got sick chicks some type of supplement is only gonna help. My question is, is it recommended to put supplements in healthy chicks water for the first week or two or however long to help give them that extra health boost? If it is which supplement/vitamin is most recommend for quail chicks?

    Thank you,
    Luke

    I use the Rooster Booster brand chick electrolyte supplement in their water for the first couple of weeks. I just mix it a little weaker than for chickens. It seems to help.
