    We have not yet used vitamins or anything added to the chicks' water. They are around 3 weeks old, and I have friends that use supplements for the chick water to protect against wry neck. Can anyone suggest a good supplement or give any advice in this area? We are pretty close to TSC in Logan, Ohio so we will probably shop there. Thanks in advance!

    I would not add anything to the water. You would be wasting money, time, and could cause harm to young chicks. A good starter feed will have all of the vitamins and nutrients they need.
