    This was informative. I fed my first flock medicated starter. Never saw any weird nutrition problems from it, but one chicky laid funny shaped eggs as an adult. It was like she'd stop laying in mid lay so the eggs had ridges and rolling hills with a pointy end. I'm using non-medicated starter on my new flock of bantams. So I will have to watch for symptoms of this with the newbies.

    Excellent article, I lost one to cocci. Was doing great, but just didnt catch it in time. I medicated the rest of the flock and the two newbies as a precaution. Alls well at Cashews Diner.
