    Is this something that I need to stop giving or? They are 2 weeks old now.

    It's up to you. I gave vitamins and probiotics for the first two months.

    I never give electrolytes. You can overload their system or overdose them with those. I may give Avia Charge 2000 (vitamin/mineral/amino acid supplement for avians) in their quart waterer every other day for the first few days after hatch and that's it. After that, fresh water only except on rare occasions. Once a week or so, they get plain yogurt for probiotics.
