    We just moved to our home in June, beautiful 20 acres but the downfall is the well water. We had it tested, it is safe to drink it is just incredibly salty, we talked about drilling a new well but just the area as a whole is salty. We have horses that don't mind it. I just bought baby chicks, will this affect them in any way?

    If it is safe for you, it should be safe for your birds. You might contact your County Agricultural Extension agent to validate.
