    When I picked up my chicks last week I started them on McMurrays Chick start which has vitamins and minerals and elcotryolytes. I also picked up some of McMurrays Immuno Charge and Avian Charge 2000 to add to their water when they are older. Check out McMurrays and see what you think? We feed Modesto Milling soy free organic feed and they will also get a lot of fresh veggies and fruits. I think the key to good health as with us is to have variety. A good feed and adding all the veggies and fruits and allowing them to eat bugs a few days a week in the yard/garden.

    You don't actually need to add any vitamins. If you want to, you can get infant vitamin drops without iron from a drug store for about $10 and add a dropperful to the water.
