Hello, I currently have three ~2-month-olds and three ~5-month-olds that are living together. I'm currently feeding them medicated chick feed, but I know that it's almost time for the older ones to start eating laying feed. I talked to someone at the feed store, and he said to get 20% laying mash, that the calcium won't hurt the younger ones.
I'm just wondering if this is sound advice since I've heard calcium is bad for non-laying chickens. And is it indeed bad to eat eggs from medicated-feed-eating hens? The stuff in my feed is called "monensin". Also, at 2 months do they still really need the medicated feed?
Hopefully I can get this whole feed situation worked out
