Do new chics need shots? Medicated feed? They were bought at an animal auction.

If they are over 6 weeks old I would put them on wormer and check for mites also fowl pox. After a week of medicine they should be fine and healthy.

If I would guess by photos i have seen they are probably 1-2 wks old. Everything seems great so far. Just keep reading so much information and we want to do the right thing. What about vitamins?

If one chick shows any sign of weakness or sickeness separate it. When you go to get feed, get chick starter also they will need grit they have special grit for chicks and they is also powder packs you add to the chicks water that give them vitiams.
