    I've seen alot of people talking about putting vitamins in chicks water. Should everyone do that or is it just for sick chicks?[​IMG]

    Amanda if you are feeding good quality ration the vitamins are already in the mix. Free-range chickens get many vitamins from what they eat in the warmer months.If you are just feeding table scraps and free-ranging in the winter vitamins are likely in order.

    Hope that helps.

    I just realised you said chicks and not chickens! We just added cider vinegar to the chicks water every dy and that seemed to do the trick.
