My experience tells me that before the arrival of day old chicks vitaminated water and glucose should be served first for about an hour before serving chick mash. This would allow the chicks to rest well before feeding. This would also ensure uniform growth in the flock as feeding resumes nearly at the same time within the flock.

Gut health can be maintained by introducing probiotics/organic acids on very first days, until the production of natural probiotics on next week.
