I'm very excited about getting my peeps (chicks) in 2-wks, but I have been debating with myself about whether to buy organic feed or medicated feed to help build up each chick's immune system.
Since people say that "hindsight is 20/20" I would really appreciate hearing from people who started chicks (pullets by now) on organic and/or medicated chick feed to get your thoughts on the following:
- Would you make the same feed decision (organic vs. medicated) after the experience?
- If you have tried both organic and medicated feed for chicks, did you see that chicks grew up stronger/healthier as a result of using either type of feed?
- What brand(s) of chick feed did you use?
Look forward to hearing from you.
P.S. I decided to have the chicks vaccinated for Mareks
