Homemade Energy Booster
For Baby Chicks

Raising baby chicks? Here’s a DIY energy booster or electrolyte recipe you can put in their water. Great for their health & easy for beginners. Important to getting your chicks off to a great start!

After you select the best place to get your baby chicks, you're now ready to set up your brooder.

To give your chicks an added BOOST, make up this simple electrolyte recipe to add to their water. This is a easy recipe there's no reason not to make some for your new chicks. 

If you're ordering your chicks this recipe is great to help your chicks with the stress of shipping. And even if you're buying your chicks locally this is still a great way to get them off to a great healthy start. 

After they get a bit older I still like to occasionally add in some garlic and apple cider vinegar to their water. It's so good for them! And if you're raising layers, there's the added bonus of garlic and apple cider vinegar, helping them to lay more eggs...at least that's what some people say.

The Ingredients...

Garlic is antibacterial, antiviral, an infection preventer,  and its a worm preventative & treatment.

Apple Cider Vinegar is an amazing source of probiotics, helps their digestion, boosts their immune system, gives them energy, and it helps with respiratory problems. 

The honey is in here for some additional energy. You want live, active, happy baby chicks!

Why Do I Need This?

All the above reasons! But to sum it up...

Feeding all this good stuff to your new chicks helps them fight anything they might be dealing with (stress, sickness, etc.), and it gives them a great start to a long healthy life! 

Let's make the recipe!
