    Can chicks drink city water that has high clourine levels? Our cats, dogs, horses drink it with no problems. I don't know either way so I thought I would ask prior to possibly doing something dumb that would kill the chicks I'm getting in just 2 weeks. Thanks in advance

    i maintain a small well system and chlorine is used to keep bad bacteria from growing in water. I wouldn't think it would be a problem at all.

    All my chicks have ever had is city water.

    12 eggs today.

    gotta love it.
