Do you give your newborn chicks vitamins and electrolytes in their water? I thought I read somewhere about sugar in their water, but can they handle the vitamins and electrolytes?

I gave my chicks fresh clean water. Kept some poultry electrolytes on hand for emergencies, failing chick, etc. but didn't use it on a daily basis.
When the temps around here reached 100 and stayed there for days I added electrolytes to their water and discontinued them again as soon as the temps moderated.
