Why medicated feed from day old chicks to say three months it was Cocidious. I have had a couple of fellows who did not do it and ended up with loosing over half of their birds. One guy drove 400 miles one way to get 4 dozen Colombian Plymouth rock eggs from Canada. He hatched I think about 30 chicks then they started dieing. He ended up afterwords with about 6 birds.
Another friend got some free feed broiler type and did it then he lost almost half of his chicks for the year.
I am a big be leaver of the Fit of the Fittest Principle but I have always given my c hicks medicated feed.
I have heard guys giving o.onLy one feed for their birds.
I kind of do that with the FRM game bird pellets. I start them on that as soon as I think their immune system is ready
New York Reds. Is your feed medicated for the chicks?
Is it a crumble or pellet?
Does it have Cali cum for egg building during breeding season?
Do you give Oyster Shell as a supplement?
Thanks for the post. bob
