Chickens consume about twice as much water as food, although this ratio can be much higher during hot conditions. About 70% of a chick’s weight is water (this can be as high as 85% at hatch), therefore any reduction in water intake or increase in water loss will have a significant effect on the lifetime performance of the chick.
