Organic vs game bird medicated feed for poults

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Organic turkey feed vs turkey starter (medicated I think) which would you choose?
The organic mill where I get my chicken and cow feed from will mix up turkey feed for me.
Or I can get the feed from the local coop its 30% protein(medicated) it's either turkey or wild bird starter I can't remember. I started my guineas on this last year and they did really well.
With my guineas I figured we won't be eating them so I was ok giving them the medicated feed. We are going to be eating the turkeys.
Any thoughts?
Thanks!

The medicated feed will be fine.  The effects of the medication will prevent any deaths due to coccidiosis.  The effects of the medication will be long gone before you process the turkeys since it only needs to be used a maximum of the first 6 weeks.  After that you can switch to a turkey grower or a meat bird feed.

 

Good luck.
