You mean in case they are ill/injured/heat stroke and need electrolytes? I am guessing: probably. Would not give to day-old chicks; I use the packets they sell in the feed store for the first few days.

Or you could make a homemade electrolyte drink:

8 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

add 1.5 tsp per quart of water.

Ditto @Avna - either make that solution or use the "Sav-A-Chick" packets (which we call "Chicken Gatorade" in our house )
