Ok...what about a mixed flock??? I have ducks in my flock (currently all in the same coop) and was told they can't have antibiotics or the medicated feed.
Was this right?
I'm currently using Purina Flock Raiser (non-medicated) and have only used antibiotics in the water of my isolated chicks before they go into the coop for about a week or so.
Am I doing this right or should something be different?
So far I've only lost 2 Banties at the very beginning and I believe 1 was because it got wet & the other was probably from being handled too much/too roughly by my 5 yr old as it was his favorite chick.
