People swear by sugar water for reviving chickens that seem dehydrated, lethargic, or generally unwell chickens.
The idea of chickens consuming sugar water sounds like a recipe for disaster. So is it safe for sick chickens?
Yes, chickens can drink sugar water.
It's something you gave makeup quickly, without running to a supply store to buy when you need it. And let's face it, you only need these things when stores are closed.
While it can be beneficial for chickens, it should be provided sparingly and in safe quantities.
To make it, simply dissolve 1/4 cup of sugar in 1 cup of warm water.
Once the sugar has dissolved, let the chicken drink as much as it wants. Some people also add a pinch of salt to the mixture.
