It's a matter of opinion whether to feed medicated chick starter or not. In my opinion you're giving them a medication they don't need & you can treat the cocci if they get it, which usually is not as common as thought. I don't personally feed it because I have found that some breeds of chicks don't tolerate the amprolium in it & I was losing chicks just from the medication, which stopped when I quit feeding it. You have to do what you feel is best but in my situation I just do better without the medicated feed. I do give my chicks extra vitamins in the water to get them started well.
I got some of the winterizing done yesterday but have more to do today. I just need to get it done so I have one less thing to worry about. I may be having my total knee sooner than I had originally planned so I need to have things done before then.
