    following some advice i got yesterday from here i mixed in a tablespoon of sugar with my baby chicks water

    since i got them they have been pretty sluggish - eat/sleep rinse and repeat

    but since putting a little bit of sugar in with their water they have been much more active and much more entertaining.


    i just wanted to thank you guys for your good advice
